The First Wave

The First Wave by Alex Kershaw is the story of “the D-Day Warriors Who Led the Way to Victory in World War II.” This is the story of the soldiers who first landed on the Normandy beaches on D-Day. There is a quote at the beginning that neatly says it all--you can manufacture ammunition and weapons but you cannot buy valor or pull heroes off an assembly line. This riveting book tells the story of the infamous day that turned the tide of the war. The focus is on the minute by minute battle. Lots of first-person quotes make for fascinating reading.
