About the Book

A powerful account of the great amphibious assault that changed the course of history.

Often called the largest seaborne invasion in history, the U.S. led assault on Normandy on June 6, 1944 was certainly the most complex and the most crucial military operation of World War II, one that determined the ultimate liberation of Europe and defeat of Nazi Germany.

For Americans especially, D-Day has an almost legendary status and countless histories have been written of this pivotal battle. Martin K. A. Morgan, regarded as his generation's leading scholar of the American role in the Normandy campaign, has created a fresh and revealing new history that chronicles the pivotal battle through 450 extraordinary photographs.

To honor the 75th anniversary of the Normandy Invasion, Easton Press is proud to present a special leather-bound Collector's Edition of Martin K.A. Morgan's acclaimed book: D-DAY: A Photographic History of the Normandy Invasion.

“A great addition to the historical record,” -- ArmchairGeneral.com

Martin K.A. Morgan spent years researching photographs of the invasion in archives around the world and collecting photos from the many D-Day veterans and witnesses he interviewed. Because of his vast knowledge of the conflict, Morgan was uniquely qualified to understand each photograph he examined and its place in the story of the battle.

Some of the 450 photographs selected for D-DAY: A Photographic History of the Normandy Invasion are iconic. Many have never before been published. But few have ever been seen in context, and never before have they been combined to create a comprehensive and uniquely detailed and intimate portrait of the intense struggle for control of Normandy.

Morgan's text and meticulously captioned photographs take the reader through the preparations, the air and sea attacks, and the assaults on the beaches and into the world of battle, revealing uniforms, weapons, equipment, landscapes, and even the mood and the emotions of the participants.

“A stunning tour de force of photos documenting the American invasion of Normandy,” says Military Monday Radio of Martin K.A. Morgan book. “The level of detail in every caption is unsurpassed,” declares DefenseMediaNetwork.com.
