In Normandy, 75 Years Later, Klein takes readers on a photographic journey through modern-day Normandy and the historical remnants left behind from one of the most infamous times in history. From bomb craters to German bunkers, Dennis’s photos will reveal scars of the past. Gravestones of fallen soldiers in cemeteries throughout the region are perpetual reminders of the lives that ended too soon. But while the gunfire of the Nazi soldiers and Allied Forces once scarred the earth, the beaches and hamlets have now returned to their original serenity. Poignant in its accurate retelling of the invasion of Normandy, Normandy, 75 Years Later offers readers invaluable insight into the history and beauty of Normandy, France, on the seventy-fifth anniversary of D-Day. He hopes that, in flipping through each page, readers will realize that time truly does heal all wounds.

In the spring of 1943, the USS George Washington steamed out to sea carrying America’s most precious cargo: its youth. Out of farm fields and cities, dockyards and capitals a formidable fighting force was born and forged. They left their nation bordered by oceans to fight a disciplined, entrenched and combat-experienced army. They leapt from the sky to face the German on the isle of Sicily, the mountains of Italy and plains of Anzio, the fields of Holland and the frozen forests of the Belgian Bulge. This is their story.

Bestselling author Jennet Conant brings us a stunning account of Julia and Paul Child’s experiences as members of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in the Far East during World War II and the tumultuous years when they were caught up in the McCarthy Red spy hunt in the 1950s and behaved with bravery and honor. It is the fascinating portrait of a group of idealistic men and women who were recruited by the citizen spy service, slapped into uniform, and dispatched to wage political warfare in remote outposts in Ceylon, India, and China.
