Publisher's Summary

In the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, a small detachment of British airborne troops stormed the German defense forces and paved the way for the Allied invasion of Europe. Pegasus Bridge was the first engagement of D-day, the turning point of World War II. This gripping account of it by acclaimed author Stephen Ambrose brings to life a daring mission so crucial that, had it been unsuccessful, the entire Normandy invasion might have failed. Ambrose traces each step of the preparations over many months to the minute-by-minute excitement of the hand-to-hand confrontations on the bridge. This is a story of heroism and cowardice, kindness and brutality - the stuff of all great adventures.

    Story
    "History At Its Best"

    I've been to Pegasus Bridge several times and actually shook the hand of a 6th Airborne veteran there. The Gondree Cafe is still there and still operated by the family. If you love European history in general ... and WWII history in particular ... you must read this book and visit Normandy.

    "Great story told in greater detal"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great story but the narrator would do a better job. Sound quality was not good.

    "Genuinely mediocre"

    Hard to imagine a more detailed account of such a trivial military engagement. Truly puzzling.
