    Description

    When Hitler declared war on the United States, he bet that the young men brought up in the Hitler Youth would outfight the youngsters brought up in the Boy Scouts. Now, in this magnificent retelling of the war's most climactic battle, acclaimed Eisenhower biographer and World War II historian Stephen E. Ambrose tells how wrong Hitler was. Drawing on hundreds of oral histories as well as never-before-available information from around the world, Ambrose tells the true story of how the Allies broke through Hitler's Atlantic Wall, revealing that the intricate plan for the invasion had to be abandoned before the first shot was fired. Focusing on the 24 hours of June 6, 1944 - D-Day brings to life the stories of the men and women who made history - from top Allied and Axis strategic commanders to the citizen soldiers whose heroic initiative saved the day.

    Listen to Stephen Ambrose talk about this book on C-SPAN's Booknotes (6/5/94).

    Great Lead into Band of Brothers

    If you plan to listen to Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose, then i recommend listening to D-Day first. The reason for this is because D-Day is a good overview of the build up and execution of Overlord from a leadership perspective (on both the American and German sides, but mostly American). After listening to this book, you will have a good feel for what the plan is and how it was executed. Then, when listening to one story about a specific group of men, as with Band of Brothers, it will be easier to follow having already listened to D-Day. At least, it was for me. Also, I like Ambrose's 'GI accent', it adds to the atmosphere of the book.

    AWESOME

    Stephen Ambrose is the man! Nobody can tell a story like he does. The author does a great job bringing these events to life in a way that makes you feel as if you were there. I'm still amazed at the heroics our boys had in Normandy!

    Utterly Engrossing

    Anyone with even a passing interest in World War II will find this an absolutely gripping audiobook. It's so alive, so real, so vivid, the personal stories of so many participants in the epic of D-Day will grab hold of you and leave you exhilarated, terrified, breathless.

    Having Ambrose narrate himself is a treat. The man's passion for his subject is utterly obvious and contributes mightily to the success of the audio version. I am aware of the controversy surrounding Ambrose in his later years (accusations of plagiarism), but whether or not the accusations are true, they cannot detract from his power as a presenter of history.

    His voice is not as strong as I recall it from History Channel presentations a decade or so back, but it is just as passionate, forceful, and humorous. He brings the epic events of D-Day down to such a human level, and makes it all very REAL to those of us comfortably ensconced here in the 21st century.

    I couldn't recommend this more highly.

    An absolute MUST for Ambrose Fans

    Ambrose classic, huge bonus to have him reading his own work. Ambrose's great storytelling, combined with his extensive interviews of the GI's make this an amazing audio book. This is the only book that he actually reads himself, I personally love his singular voice, and for all Ambrose fans this is a must have. Like so many others I have read the book before, but highly recommend getting the audio anyway no matter how many times you have read the text, it just fun to hear him read this nicely edited excerpt. I know I'll listen to this over the years multiple times.

    What an Incredible Story

    I couldn't stop listening to this account of an extraordinary day. I found myself sitting in my car in the driveway waiting for the next break in the action.

    This is the story of ordinary men who found themselves in an extraordinary situation. The author focuses both on men who did not survive, as well as men who did and some who rose to the challenge and displayed the great American character that has defined our country.

    I learned a great deal I did not know about the landing. The story was told in a very un-biased, non-politicized way. The reading is superb.

    Loved the book. Love Stephen Ambrose's work

    He's just not as enthralling in voice. Hi's cadence was all over the place and he got a little short of breath at times. Those two small issues distract from a well written book.

    Ambrose's narration is okay and the story important

    A professional narrator would have been a better listen, but it was goo to hear his 1st person narrative, so to speak.
