By: Alexandre Renaud
91/2 x 7 inches
On June 5 & 6, 1944, Alexandre Renaud, then mayor of Sainte-Mere-Eglise, France, saw the first paratroopers land in Normandy. In the hours that followed, he witnessed the liberation of his village, house-by-house, street-by-street.
This book, published in 1945 (and a best-seller from 1945-1947) is a remarkable testimony by the author, enriched in its new presentation by many historical photographs never before published.
