Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of D-Day: The Battle for Normandy by Antony Beevor, read by Cameron Stewart.
The Normandy landings that took place on D-day involved by far the largest invasion fleet ever known. The scale of the undertaking was simply awesome. What followed them was some of the most cunning and ferocious fighting of the war, at times as savage as anything seen on the Eastern Front.
As casualties mounted, so, too, did the tensions between the principal commanders on both sides. Meanwhile, French civilians caught in the middle of these battlefields or under Allied bombing endured terrible suffering. Even the joys of liberation had their darker side. Antony Beevor's gripping narrative conveys the true experience of war.

Detailed account but not as good as Stalingrad

Anthony Beevor is a leading military historian whose works on Stalingrad and Berlin are excellent.
This is a detailed account not just of D Day but of the campaign in France until the liberation of Paris.However, at times it lacks analysis.
The narration was spoiled by the narrator's use of accents which were not merely unnecessary but unintentionally comical at times, which detracted from the serious nature of the subject matter
