Publisher's Summary

In the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, a small detachment of British airborne troops stormed the German defense forces and paved the way for the Allied invasion of Europe. Pegasus Bridge was the first engagement of D-day, the turning point of World War II. This gripping account of it by acclaimed author Stephen Ambrose brings to life a daring mission so crucial that, had it been unsuccessful, the entire Normandy invasion might have failed. Ambrose traces each step of the preparations over many months to the minute-by-minute excitement of the hand-to-hand confrontations on the bridge. This is a story of heroism and cowardice, kindness and brutality - the stuff of all great adventures.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a great story but the narrator would do a better job. Sound quality was not good.

Genuinely mediocre

Hard to imagine a more detailed account of such a trivial military engagement. Truly puzzling.
