D-Day Help Required

Discussion in 'NW Europe' started by Tales from the Front, Mar 28, 2014.

  1. Dear all,

    I hope you don't mind me requesting further help, but I think the members on here will be the perfect people for me to speak to.

    I'm interested in reading any memoirs relating to June 6th. I've got the official memoirs and biographies of people such as Churchill, Montgomery and Eisenhower, but I'd very much like to read accounts of people who experienced the invasion first hand, in any capacity. I've read the "Forgotten Voices of D-Day" which has been extremely useful and which I'd thoroughly recommend to anyone who hasn't read it. I'll also be visiting the IWM and the National Archives, so if you or any members of your family have documents in either of those archives which you think I should have a look for then please let me know.

    I look forward to hearing from some of you, and thank you all for taking the time to read this message.

    Many thanks and best wishes,

  2. I've just realised that might sound a bit like I'll only read documents which are in the IWM or National Archives. If anyone has any records which aren't in there, but you're happy to email them to me or direct me to them online, then that would be perfect as well.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Chris,

    There are lots of Websites which now have veterans first-hand accounts of the horrors of D-Day.

    I have pasted the link to and American website because they are far more "verbal" about their involvement in D-Day.


    There are also many DVD's available which have interviews with the veterans and they give you the raw emotion of what it must have been like.

    The BBC has this website :


    Loads of others.

    Kind regards,
