Location: Hatchards Piccadilly
Join Giles Milton at Hatchards Piccadilly as he discusses D:Day: The Soldiers’ Story. Discussing the uncovered stories and shocking realities, Giles will dig deeper into this horrifying period of history he has researched and knows so well.
D-Day: The Soldiers’ Story explores the terror of those trapped in the frontline through unheard voices involved in a battle of 156,000 men, 7,000 ships and 20,000 armoured vehicles. Narrating the tales of the day’s survivors from all sides, Milton reveals details of the ‘Longest Day’ in its raw, unvarnished entirety. This untold perspective of the D-Day happenings questions the outcomes through the eyes of those who experienced it first-hand.
‘What sets Milton’s work apart from other recounting is his behind-the-scenes access to the stories of the small group of men who put their minds to creating new ways to wage war’ – The Spectator
Giles Milton is a bestselling author and historian. His previous books include Nathaniel’s Nutmeg, Churchill’s Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare and Russian Roulette.
