Summary:

Stephen E. Ambrose draws from hundreds of interviews with US Army veterans and the brave Allied soldiers who fought alongside them to create this exceptional account of the day that shaped the twentieth century. 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 and courage and heroism come to the fore.

    The book is excellent and tells the Overlord story in great detail. I will definitly listen to it again to get more of the details in! The narration is just bad.. The narrator absolutely butchers every German and Dutch word he comes across and even manages to make mistakes in English placenames. To not take the slightest effort in doing the research on how to pronounce words is bad enough on its own as a professional voice actor, but with the number of times 'Ost-Battalions' come up in this book it really is infuriating to hear the same mistake being made again and again. Hitlerjogend? Arnheim? These aren't ancients languages you know... get someone in Europe on the line and get a sense of how these things are pronounced. You are forgiven if the pronounciations are slightly off, but to butcher them like this in a (presumably professional) narration is is just plain insulting.
