Reviews - What do customers think about Time: D-Day: 24 Hours That Saved the World?

Good first-draft of history  Sep 9, 2008
Reads like a Time magazine article, not surprising since much of it is based on Time reporting and photography from that historic time. Not groundbreaking research and theorizing, but a good first-draft of history with simple graphics to explain the geography and progress of the landing.
The climax of World War II.  Jan 27, 2005
A nice picture book that has a lot of information contained in its 154 pages. Time examines the longest day by going into detail about what happened in the 24 hours that saved the world. This book also examines different aspects of the battle itself such as the engineering, medical, journalist parts. For many, the battle itself was the high point, but beyond that were the planning and engineering that made the victory possible. This book also points out the command system of the Allies and Nazis. The Allies had a command system where individual initiative resulted in local commanders changing orders when the need arose versus the Germans who had to seek the Fuhrer's approval for command changes. Book also had nice little biographies of those who contributed to the victory.
A nice read and picture book for those interested in World War II. There are many books on this famous day and battle, but this is one of the better ones.
Great Book  Aug 4, 2004
Time: D-Day: 24 hours that saved the world is a great book. It has a lot of pictures and writing. It has maps too. If you are interested in learning about D-Day you should read this book.
Remids Us That Freedom Isn't Free  May 26, 2004
The pictures and stories take you to the beaches of Normandy and progresses brilliantly through the 24 hrs of D-Day. This should be in all of our school libraries. Thanks to our Veterans of ALL wars.
