Summary
D-Day, the Allied invasion of Northwestern France in June 1944, has remained in the forefront of American memories of the second world war to this day. Depictions in books, news stories, documentaries, museums, monuments, memorial celebrations, speeches, games, and Hollywood spectaculars have overwhelmingly romanticized the assault as an event in which citizen soldiers - the everyday heroes of democracy - engaged evil foes and a decisive clash fought for liberty, national redemption, and world salvation. In D-Day Remembered, Michael R. Dolski explores the evolution of American details over the course of the past seven decades. He shows the ways in which that particular episode came to overshadow so many others in portraying the twentieth century's most devastating cataclysm as {28}the good War
