Marking the 75th anniversary of Operation Overlord, The Saturday Evening Post Collector’s Edition: D-Day takes you inside one of the most important military operations of the 20th century — the invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944.
D-Day marked the beginning of the end of World War II and became a turning point in America’s leadership on the international stage, and in these pages you’ll find out why. Packed with original, contemporaneous reporting from the Post, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at how Gen. Eisenhower brought the Allies together, discover the immense amount of planning that led up to Operation Overlord, and hit the ground with the Allied troops who pushed through and survived the ordeal, including
- the paratroopers who dropped into France in the dead of night ahead of the invasion
- the Rangers who scaled the cliffs at Pointe du Hoc to surprise Nazi forces
- the sailors who pounded the German strongholds from their warships
- the GIs who stormed the beaches of Omaha, Utah, Gold, Juno, and Sword
