A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

D-Day, 6th June 1944, was the climactic battle of World War II. Allied triumph was anything but inevitable - there was everything to play for and everything to lose. The story of the landings has been told and re-told many times, but no one has revealed the part that fate, human error, political infighting, deception and double agents played in the absolutely crucial ten days before the landings. David Stafford's narrative, climaxing on the eve of D-Day, gives a day-by-day account of the untold human story behind this momentous event from both the Allied and Nazi perspectives. Stafford focuses on 12 very different human narratives - not only those of Hitler, Eisenhower, Montgomery, Churchill and Rommel, but of an American paratrooper; a Canadian infantryman; a French Jew in hiding, awaiting liberation but helpless to do anything; and SOE agents fighting to keep their identity secret. The book recounts the entirety of events in the countdown that could have taken a fatefully different direction so many times along the way, revealing how narrow the margin was between victory and defeat.

From the Publisher:

In time for the 60th anniversary of D-Day, a riveting account of the Normandy invasion, drawing on previously unpublished diaries and letters.
