    OMAHA BEACH: D-DAY, JUNE 6, 1944

    Book ID/图书代码: 12346918C00001

    English Summary/英文概要: "Balkoski’s depiction of ’Bloody Omaha’ is the literary accompaniment to the white-knuckle Omaha Beach scene that opens Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan." -- John Hillen, New York Post

    "Balkoski is sometimes referred to as the finest living D-Day historian. For my money, the title fits. Anyone who wants to know anything about Omaha Beach, where the fighting was heaviest and bloodiest, must begin with this foundational book by a true maestro of original history. The research is unparalleled and comprehensive enough to satisfy even the most skeptical scholar, yet the story is absorbing. The carnage of Omaha Beach comes to life with vivid contemporary descriptions from participants and witnesses, while the whole tale is deftly steered along by Balkoski’s steady narration and his sense of the battle’s larger significance. ’History can provide at least a little solace that there was some meaning to it all,’ he writes movingly. ’D-Day was the decisive chapter of a twentieth century Iliad.’ Indeed it was--and Balkoski is its Homer." -- John McManus, Wall Street Journal

    In this unforgettable narrative of D-Day, Joseph Balkoski describes the minute-by-minute combat as it unfolded on Omaha Beach, allowing soldiers to speak for themselves as they recall their attempts to maneuver bombers through heavy cloud cover, the claustrophobic terror aboard transports, and the relentless fire that greeted them on the beach. Equal parts oral history and meticulous reconstruction, Omaha Beach is the closest the modern reader can get to experiencing the Normandy landings firsthand."
