A day in hell
On June 6th, 1944, there were well over 2,400 casualties on Omaha Beach—easily D-Day’s highest death toll. The Wehrmacht thought it had bludgeoned the Americans into submission, yet by mid-afternoon, the American troops were ashore. Why were the casualties so grim, and how could the Germans have failed?
This was the beginning of the historic day that Landing on the Edge of Eternity narrates hour by hour―from midnight to midnight. Juxtaposing the American and German experiences, Alex Kershaw draws on eyewitness accounts, memories, letters, and post-combat reports to expose the true horrors of Omaha Beach.
Landing on the Edge of Eternity is a dramatic historical ride through an amphibious landing that looked as though it might never succeed.
