D-Day

This book is an incredible collection of recordings, interviews, and letters from the soldiers and operatives who organised the D-Day and fought it. It’s an amazing book, full of great details and touching and heart breaking stories although there are some light moments as well.
Sometimes the language becomes a bit too technical and there are several unexplained acronyms, but overall, it’s easy to follow.  I particularly loved the chapters about the training and the preparation the soldiers had to carry out before the D-Day, like the practise with the Davis apparatus and the exploration of the French coasts to find the perfect spot for the landing. It’s easy to feel the tension and anxiety before the mission, but also the determination of the soldiers. Strongly recommend it.
