Stephen E. Ambrose draws from more than 1,400 interviews with American, British, Canadian, French, and German veterans to create the preeminent chronicle of the most important day in the twentieth century. Ambrose reveals how the original plans for the invasion were abandoned, and how ordinary soldiers and officers acted on their own initiative.
D-Day is above all the epic story of men at the most demanding moment of their existence, when the horrors, complexities, and triumphs of life are laid bare. Ambrose portrays the faces of courage and heroism, fear and determination -- what Eisenhower called "the fury of an aroused democracy" -- that shaped the victory of the citizen soldiers whom Hitler had disparaged.
Se non ricordo male uscì subito dopo il film ''Salvate il sodato Ryan''. In sé il libro è interessante ma ho avuto la sensazione che fosse stato tradotto di corsa. Forse sono io ad essere troppo perfezionista ma alcune sviste rendono la lettura un esercizio di pazienza.
