6th June 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the greatest seaborne invasion in history. This epic battle which involved 156,000 men, 7,000 ships and 20,000 armoured vehicles, was above all a story of individual heroics – Allied, German and French. Giles Milton reveals the day’s events through the tales of survivors from all sides; the teenage conscript, the French butcher’s daughter, the chauffeur to the general staff, the crack German defender, the French resistance fighter and the panzer commander’s wife. Giles Milton is the bestselling author of Nathaniel’s Nutmeg (serialised on BBC TV) and Fascinating Footnotes from History.
