This new addition to the Perspectives on Modern World History series explores the historical and cultural events leading up to and following the June 1944 Allied invasion of Normandy. The text also addresses several issues surrounding the invasion, such as whether the invasion was necessary, whether D-Day marked the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany, and whether Winston Churchill was pressured into backing D-Day by American demands. Personal narratives from people impacted by D-Day -- including reflections by both Allied and German soldiers, and a Normandy teen remembering the invasion firsthand -- are featured.
