With everything that has been written about the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France, you’d think there would be no stone left to turn over. In this book, McManus focuses on the First Infantry Division (nicknamed the “Big Red One”) and its role in securing Omaha Beach. Another great narrative brimming with personality, and based on outstanding research, including interviews with veterans who survived the Big Red One’s grueling 19-hour landing on Omaha Beach.
