This month, the two lucky winners of the MHM Competition will get a copy of both The D-Day 70th Anniversary Collector’s Edition: The Longest Day by Cornealius Ryan, and D-Day Remembered by Richard Holmes.
The D-Day 70th Anniversary Collector’s Edition: The Longest Day
The Longest Day tells the inside story of the invasion of Normandy through first-hand accounts from the men who were there. This new, illustrated, unabridged edition makes the extraordinary heroism of the participants on both sides of the war – military and civilian – even more immediate through the publication for the first time of removable facsimiles of research documents and digitally remastered audio interviews, which until now
have been sequestered in the Cornelius Ryan Collection in the United States.
Written by one of Britain’s best-known and respected military historians, D-Day Remembered sheds light on the planning, execution, and aftermath of the most momentous event of the Second World War. It includes more than 25 facsimile items of rare memorabilia, such as maps, diaries, secret memos and reports, posters, and logbooks from the collections of the Imperial War Museum and other archives around the world. The book comes with a specially produced DVD featuring the documentary D-Day: Assault on Fortress Europe.
