NOTHING LESS THAN VICTORY: AN ORAL HISTORY OF D-DAY., Miller, Russell.

Author Name    Miller, Russell.

Title   NOTHING LESS THAN VICTORY: AN ORAL HISTORY OF D-DAY.

Publisher    Penguin, London, 1994.

Seller ID   24312

496 pp, 7 3/4" H, soft cover. ISBN 0140178465 B&w photographs, maps. "The Normandy Landings, the largest amphibious operation the world has ever seen, marked 'the beginning of the end of the Second World War'. Russell Miller's superb book offers a definitive account of 'being alive in 1944, being young, and being at war'. Letters, diaries, memos and dozens of interviews with veterans from all sides recreate the deception plans and dry runs, the desperate German wait behind the Atlan t i c W a ll, the disagreements between Allies, the ghastly ordeal of Omaha Beach, Resistance sabotage operations and the first day of battle. Throughout, Russell Miller has enticed from his old soldiers not only astonishingly vivid memories of ev en ts b u t th eir feelings as participants. Here, he writes, we find 'hysteria and horror interspersed with flashes of heroism and humour - these are the true voices of D-Day'." Interior - minor browning to pages, otherwise clean and tight with no pre vio us o wne rship marks. Exterior - minor edge wear, one tiny corner crease minor browning to edges of text block. Very Good+
