D-Day before dawn. Minute by minute, hour by hour the danger grows... In the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, a small detachment of British airborne troops stormed the German defence forces and paved the way for the Allied invasion of Europe.

Pegasus Bridge was the first engagement of D-Day, the turning point of World War II.

This gripping account by acclaimed author Stephen E.

Ambrose brings to life a daring mission so crucial that, had it been unsuccessful, the entire Normandy invasion might have failed.

Ambrose traces each step of the preparations over many months to the minute-by-minute excitement of the hand-to-hand confrontations on the bridge.

This is a story of heroism and cowardice, kindness and brutality - the stuff of all great adventures.
