First published in 1959, The Longest Day is one of the best-selling military history books of all time, and was the basis for the legendary war movie in 1962 released by 20th Century Fox.

The author and war journalist, Cornelius Ryan, pioneered a new style of military-history writing based on interview research with over a thousand battle participants. The result is a vivid description of D-Day based on the stories of the people, on both sides, who took part in those crucial 24 hours. The great body of first-hand documents, interview transcripts and questionnaires he collected is now held in Ohio University Libraries.

This beautifully designed illustrated edition incorporates 25 of these original research documents with Ryan's classic text, and is further enhanced with 120 photographs of D-Day.
