About this item

As D-Day unfolded on June 6, 1944, one of the ships supporting the invasion was the HMSBelfast, a Royal Navy light cruiser. Now a popular floating museum on the Thames, theBelfast played an important part not just in the events of that day, but in the longer Battle for Normandy. This book uses firsthand accounts from the rich collections of the Imperial War Museums to tell the story of the planning of and build-up to D-Day, the action and danger of that day, and the ship’s subsequent history. Packed with testimony from oral histories, diaries, memoirs, and letters, as well as more than two hundred color photographs, it brings the heroism of D-Day vigorously to life.
