Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of D-Day: The Battle for Normandy by Antony Beevor, read by Cameron Stewart.
The Normandy landings that took place on D-day involved by far the largest invasion fleet ever known. The scale of the undertaking was simply awesome. What followed them was some of the most cunning and ferocious fighting of the war, at times as savage as anything seen on the Eastern Front.
As casualties mounted, so, too, did the tensions between the principal commanders on both sides. Meanwhile, French civilians caught in the middle of these battlefields or under Allied bombing endured terrible suffering. Even the joys of liberation had their darker side. Antony Beevor's gripping narrative conveys the true experience of war.

Most Helpful

Great, detailed and compelling

Would you consider the audio edition of D-Day to be better than the print version?

The main hurdle of the audio edition is that you (or, at least, I) need to get a hold of a map to follow the often very detailed movements of troops.


What other book might you compare D-Day to and why?

This is a great supplement to Beevor's book on The Second World War.


What does Cameron Stewart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Cameron Stewart is a great narrator. The one thing I personally dislike is the "fake accents" he does when quoting sources, but I suppose that is down to personal taste.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

When the narrator consistently called the Leibstandarte SS for the Liebstandarte (Lieb means love in German).


Any additional comments?

A great and compelling story. Highly recommendable.
