The Invasion of Normandy, 1944 [The Young Readers Adaptation] by Rick Atkinson

D-Day: The Invasion of Normandy, 1944 [The Young Readers Adaptation] by Rick Atkinson tells the story of Operation Overlord. This was the largest military attempt to push back Nazi Germany during World War II. As readers might have guessed, months of planning formed the core of the plan, and soldiers who survived mainly on pre-rationed foods carried out the plan. Women played a significant role, too, as they were often pushed to enter jobs that had previously been held by men. At the last minute, the offensive was postponed due to bad weather. Nevertheless, the armies of many nations persevered, and were eventually one step closer to victory against Nazi evil. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the history of World War II.
