In a burnished, driving prose, incorporating a myriad of fresh sources, John Keegan tells the story of the Allies' greatest military achievement as he chronicles the 1944 invasion of Normandy, from D-Day to the liberation of Paris. Includes:

The Americans in their gallant and terrifying night drop on the eve of the landings
The Canadians in crucial action at the Omaha beachhead
The English tanks and infantry savagely fighting their way inland
The Germans in their surprisingly strong resistance
The Poles in exile blocking the German escape route in a fierce and desperate firefight
The French, liberating at last the City of Light

Not for the casual WWII reader

This was a great book, but you've got to be a real WWII addict to enjoy. Mr. Keegan covers D-Day from the large strategic picture down to the first-person description of the battle. It is a very detailed work. His use of place names and details made it a difficult listen in some areas unless you were looking at a map of Normandy. Overall, however, I really enjoyed it and will probably pick up the hardcover for my WWII collection.

Great Narration and Story, poor compresion

Enjoying the book very much except that it sounds like someone is talking in the background, some kind of compression artifact?
