Two generations later, Americans still find lessons and inspiration in the Normandy invasion of June 6, 1944. Their experience is the focus for historian John McManus in The Americans at D-Day. In ways not imagined by its participants, D-Day has become a part of mainstream culture through such productions as The Longest Day, Saving Private Ryan, and Band of Brothers. He draws frequently from memoirs, letters, diaries, and other firsthand materials from participants ranging from General Dwight Eisenhower to dozens of foot soldiers.

Vividly portrays the brutality of the conflict. McManus has written an epic, an American Illiad. Required reading on a bitter battle that won't be--and never should be--forgotten. Far more gripping than Saving Private Ryan. Walter J. Boyne, New York Times bestselling author of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

In The Americans at D-Day, the first volume of this series, John C. McManus showed us the American experience in Operation Overlord. Now, in this succeeding volume, he does the same for the Battle of Normandy as a whole. Never before has the American involvement in Normandy been examined so thoroughly or exclusively as in The Americans at Normandy. For D-Day was only one part of the battle, and victory came from weeks of sustained effort and sacrifices made by Allied soldiers.
Presented here is the American experience during that summer of 1944, from the aftermath of D-Day to the slaughter of the Falaise Gap, from the courageous, famed figures of Bradley, Patton, and "Lightning" Joe Collins to the lesser-known privates who toiled in torturous conditions for their country. Engrossing, lightning-quick, and filled with real human sorrow and elation, The Americans at Normandy honors those Americans who lost their lives in foreign fields and those who survived.
