6 June 1944 marked the beginning of the Allied liberation of France – and Europe. But what does the ‘D’ in D-Day stand for? Why were the code names Omaha, Utah, Gold chosen? How many casualties were there on D-Day? How did they keep the operation secret? Why land at Omaha, the ‘Bloody’ beach? What happened to Rommel?

The latest addition to the Pitkin Collectable series, D-Day Decoded answers these questions and many more as it uncovers the facts and secrets behind the greatest landing-force ever assembled.
