This is the multimedia set that relives D-Day through veterans’ eyes. The detailed book and accompanying materials trace the massive undertaking from the 1943 planning stages through the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944, and the liberation of Paris that August. While the central text explains the main events of the airborne and amphibious assaults, the integrated maps, photos, and quotations from soldiers and Resistance fighters help readers understand what it was really like to be buried in a foxhole on Utah Beach or use an official morphine injection kit as a battlefield medic. Interspersed within these pages are 28 facsimiles of real booklets, classified memos, and other war-time documents, including the Meteorological Office weather report for June 5, when high winds forced the invasion’s delay, and a prewritten—unpublished—statement by General Eisenhower accepting blame if the operation failed. The DVD includes first-hand accounts from more than 25 D-Day veterans, as well as a two-hour documentary film. 12 1/2” L x 11 1/3” W x 1 1/2” D. (4 1/2 lbs.)
The Veterans' History Of D-Day comes with The Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee. If this product ever disappoints you, for any reason, you may return your Hammacher Schlemmer purchase for exchange, credit, or refund.

Perfect gift for the WW2 enthusiast!
from St Augustine, FL
I got the package as a birthday gift for a young man who is very interested in WW2. It was perfect and he loved it. Entertaining as well as educational.
Best Christmas Present Ever!
from St. Louis, MO
My son, the history buff in our family, was thrilled with this gift. He immediately dove into the documents and maps accompanying this book. He'll treasure it for a lifetime. It was reduced to such an amazingly low price for such a valuable reference to our country's history.
