Publisher's Summary

D-Day, June 6, 1944: the most expansive military endeavor in history. No less than world cooperation would bring down Hitler and the Axis powers. And so people - and kids - across the globe lent their part. From the young US soldiers in the boats to spies in the French countryside, the coordination of thousands came together. 

Alan Gratz, author of the New York Times best-selling Refugee, explores the necessity of teamwork and heroism in dismantling tyranny in this epic, yet personal, look at D-Day in time for the 75th anniversary of the operation.

It felt like you were there

The story was amazing, but the way the narrators told it made it even better. The way they told the story and the way every character's story somehow come together was sophisticated and thought out.

Wonderful!

This was one of the first books my son (9) and I listened to on Audiobooks. Lucky for us to have chosen such a great book!!! My son was intrigued the entire time (We are both WWII buffs). My absolute favorite character was Dee. My son agrees! You can’t listen/read this story without getting fully immersed in the characters’ lives. I would love for each character to have a separate book, but it’s also so interesting to see how their lives intertwine!
