Initially published in 1959, a definitive account of D-Day based on interview research with more than a thousand battle participants. Features research documents from the Cornelius Ryan Archive.
Cornelius Ryan joined the London staff of Reuter's News Agency in 1941. In 1943 he joined the staff of the London Daily Telegraph as a war correspondent. Ryan was at Normandy twice on D-Day, on a bomber flying over the beaches, and on a patrol boat that took him back after he landed in England. Upon the activation of Patton's 3rd Army in Normandy after D-Day, Ryan joined that force and covered its activities until the end of the war in Europe. His three classic World War 2 books - The Longest Day, A Bridge too Far and The Last Battle - brought D-Day, Operation Market-Garden and the Battle for Berlin to life through the meticulously researched stories of thousands of the
men who fought on all sides in the last 11 months of World War 2 in Europe.
