D-Day Landings Anniversary Book - Gift Details

Commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Normandy with this incredibly irreplaceable WW2 D-Day Landings Book. Open it up, and you’ll feast your eyes to a comprehensive collection of newspaper articles, which cover the major events from the D-Day Landings on 6th June 1944 through to the Parisian's first day of freedom on 27th August 1944.

The Battle of Normandy, otherwise known as Operation Overload, was the Allied invasion of German occupied Western Europe during the Second World War. It was the first major break-through that led us on the road to victory and the eventual fall of the Nazi regime. Other than D-Day and the liberation of Paris, there are many important and ground-breaking events that are covered in this collection. You can read about General De Gaulle's return to Bayeux, the first important French town to be freed and many articles on the Red Army's Summer Offensive which saw vast regions of Eastern Europe taken from the Nazi's in a matter of days. The ongoing and devastating bombing of Berlin is also widely covered.

A wonderful keepsake, our Personalised WW2 D-Day Book is a great homage to the efforts made by the British Army and their allies to conquer the Nazi regime. A poignant read, this book will make a magnificent gift for any history buff, if not for anyone who lived through the Second World War.
