Daily Deals: Omaha Beach, Gossie and Tiki Lavalanche

Omaha Beach: D-Day, June 6, 1944Today Amazon offers Omaha Beach: D-Day, June 6, 1944 by Joseph Balkoski just for $1.99.

In this unforgettable narrative of D-Day, Joseph Balkoski describes the minute-by-minute combat as it unfolded on Omaha Beach, allowing soldiers to speak for themselves as they recall their attempts to maneuver bombers through heavy cloud cover, the claustrophobic terror aboard transports, and the relentless fire that greeted them on the beach. Equal parts oral history and meticulous reconstruction, Omaha Beach is the closest the modern reader can get to experiencing the Normandy landings firsthand.

“Balkoski’s depiction of ‘Bloody Omaha’ is the literary accompaniment to the white-knuckle Omaha Beach scene that opens Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan.” — John Hillen, New York Post
