Abstract:

"In 1983 the Eisenhower Center at the University of New Orleans began a project to record the recollections of as many people as possible - civilians as well as soldiers - who were involved in one of the most pivotal events of the century. Skillfully edited by Ronald J. Drez and first published on the fifty-year anniversary of D-Day, the award-winning Voices of D-Day tells the story of that momentous operation almost entirely through the words of the people who were there."--pub. desc.
