A Place in History looks at some of the most famous and iconic sites in modern history. The books in this series also explore the wider history of the particular era or event with which each site is linked, be it World War II, the Cold War, the Holocaust, or the War on Terror. The Normandy Beaches tells the story of Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe in June 1944. It explains why Normandy was chosen as the site of the D-Day landings, and describes the terrifying experiences of soldiers forced to wade ashore in the face of German gunfire. The book shows why D-Day was a turning point in World War II, and describes how the battle is remembered today. Book jacket.
