Description

D-Day, June 6, 1944: the most expansive military endeavor in history. No less than world cooperation would bring down Hitler and the Axis powers. And so people — and kids — across the globe lent their part. From the young US soldiers in the boats to spies in the French countryside, the coordination of thousands came together.

Alan Gratz, author of the New York Times best-selling Refugee, explores the necessity of teamwork and heroism in dismantling tyranny in this epic, yet personal, look at D-Day in time for the 75th anniversary of the operation.

  • (4/5)
    An engaging reminder of the sacrifices made to preserve freedom and the importance of cooperation and unity in the battle.

    Gratz takes readers to 24 hours in Europe during WWII, specifically on D-Day and presents what went on from a variety of youth's voices in the area. The narration was done by a different voice for each teen/young adult and it made the book come alive that much more.

    This book ? was amazing ?! I loved it how like they talk about different stories but they put all the stories together in the end. It’s all super sad ? and very realistic. But it’s a very good book ?.

    I liked it, although it was hard to understand for my 10 year old at times. It was a little scary for her. We listened to it in the car and she usually doesn’t get scared at these types of books, it your child gets scared easily I would recommend a different book for now. Very good book for me though!
