In the early hours of 6th June 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 of it brings to life a daring mission so crucial that, had it been unsuccessful, the entire Normandy invasion might have failed. The author of this book traces each step of the preparations over many months to the minute-by-minute excitement of the hand-to-hand confrontations on the bridge, a story of heroism and cowardice, kindness and brutality.

A great read! I couldn't put it down. The nice part was that it was quite short, so I read it in a few days, great for those intimidated by long books! Ambrose writes like a legendary storyteller and quotes extensively from the soldiers who took part, including the German soldiers, which is great. I would love to see this turned into a movie. The only thing that I didn't like was that it was too short - but that was because the mission was short and dangerous!
