Remembering D-Day

June 6 marks the 65th anniversary of D-Day, the largest invasion in military history. More than 150,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy that day in 1944, finally gaining a foothold despite pounding from German forces. Many books and movies have chronicled this epic battle, from Cornelius Ryan’s The Longest Day to Stephen Ambrose’s Band of Brothers. For an examination of the toll this fateful day took on one American town, check out The Bedford Boys, Alex Kershaw’s riveting account of a small community that lost 19 men during the first minutes of the battle.
