Author and journalist Bruce Bliven was there that day, on the beaches of France, and he recounts it all, from the risky plans developed by the American and British military leaders through the daring landing itself. Most important, he shares stories of individual bravery shown by soldiers who waded or parachuted ashore in what became the turning point of the war.

This is a great description of D-Day with a few individual stories as well as the whole operation. Describes many aspects of the preparation that I wouldn't have thought about. It helps if you saw the file "Saving Private Ryan" or have seen photos of D-Day to imagine some of the scenes described.
