ROBERT CAPA / D-Day, 1944 / "It never occurred to me until later that in order to take that picture, Capa had to get ahead of that soldier and turn his back on the action."


D-Day by Stephen Ambrose I'm not a big war buff, but I do enjoy history and some non-fiction work mixed in with all the fantasy/sci-fi/Koontz books that I read. This book, thick as a brick and sometimes dry, was overall very enjoyable from the perspective of all the details that went on behind the scenes before one shot was ever fired on the beaches of Normandy. So many background stories going on in occupied France & elsewhere around the world put me in awe.
