Now, in a gripping history of the year 1944, best-selling author Jay Winik brings to life the pivotal events that turned the tide of World War II and put more pressure on an already-ailing President Roosevelt than any other year.
In this riveting chronicle of epic images and extraordinary history, Winik captures the fiery determination of FDR, the valor and fearlessness of the D-Day invasion, and the heartbreak and hope experienced by Parisian civilians.
This tale breathes life into Winston Churchill’s words: “This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning. ”
