We read a number of books about the history of the Second World War... Yet it wasn’t until my eldest read Usborne’s True Stories of D-Day that I saw the spark of enthusiasm I had been hoping for. The book is comprised of eleven true stories which focus on the individual struggles of many brave people including paratroopers, commandos and French Resistance fighters. Each D-Day story is captivating... We recommend these books most highly and plan to work our way through the entire True Stories series.

Young readers will no doubt find D-Day a gripping account of bravery and military expertise.
