Publisher's Summary

With an introduction read by Max Hastings. The famous D-Day landings of 6 June, 1944, marked the beginning of Operation Overlord, the battle for the liberation of Europe.
Republished as part of the Pan Military Classics series, Max Hastings' acclaimed account overturns many traditional legends in this memorable study. Drawing together the eyewitness accounts of survivors from both sides, plus a wealth of previously untapped sources and documents, Overlord provides a brilliant, controversial perspective on the devastating battle for Normandy. Max Hastings, author of over 20 books, was born in 1945. He was a scholar at Charterhouse and University College, Oxford, before working as foreign correspondent for newspapers and BBC television, reporting from over 50 countries. He was editor of the Daily Telegraph for almost a decade, and then for six years edited the Evening Standard. He has won many awards for his journalism, particularly for his dispatches from the South Atlantic in 1982. He was knighted in 2002.

A True Masterpiece

For anyone with even a passing interest in military history and especially World War 2 this is a must have in their library. From a truly remarkable historian who has written numerous well rounded and informative narrative this look at one of the pivotal moments of WW2 is fantastic.

With a well balanced look from both an Axis and Allies viewpoint the book is raised to the highest heights possible by the narration of Barnaby Edwards. With an easy to listen to voice and the ability to keep me engaged on a long drive without losing focus only adds to this great piece of historical writing.
