Douglas G. Brinkley, Author, Ronald J. Drez, Author . Bulfinch $35 (185p) ISBN 978-0-8212-2889-0

Brinkley, author of John Kerry: Tour of Duty and director of the University of New Orleans's Eisenhower Center for American Studies, and editor-historian Drez team up to present the testimony of D-Day veterans: two 60-minute audio CDs (narrated by actor Stephen Lang, of Gettysburg fame) are matched with text and 150 illustrations, including maps and yearbooklike photos of the veterans in uniform, along with battlefield and transport shots. The authors present choice excerpts, with regiment-by-regiment contextualization, in 12 chapters that cover every move on Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword beaches, and points beyond and in between.
