    Acclaimed historian and New York Times best-selling author of Tour of Duty Douglas Brinkley brings the riveting account of the brave U.S. Army Rangers who stormed the coast of Normandy on D-Day and the President, 40 years later, who paid them homage.

    Overall

    First I would like to say that this is a good book, however it is more a history of a speech that was given in memorium than the battle itself. This made the book quite dissapointing for me. I feel that the actual telling of the trials and tribulations that these men went through was cut short in order to inform the reader of a few speech writers, interesting yes, but not what I expected and perhaps that is my fault. I like listening to books that detail obscenely difficult circumstances so that I can not find a reason to quit walking/running at mile 30. This book is only inspirational for about the first two hours, then it cuts over to people who got to sleep in a bed every night.
