'D-Day has become a legend.
That vital day of 6th June, 1944, has been written about, has been filmed, and has been talked about over and over again by those who were there - and those who were not. but until David Howarth (famous for The Shetland Bus and We Die Alone) wrote Dawn of D-Day never has there been a book which tells us exactly what it was really like for those who landed by parachute, or those who waded ashore from the sea, or what it was like for the Germans and French who saw them coming.'
