Explore the Impact of History on Normandy, France Seventy-Four Years After D-Day
Alpharetta, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/07/2018 -- June 6, 2018 marks the seventy-fourth anniversary of D-Day, where many brave young men landed ashore under fire and secured liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany's control. Seasoned pilot and avid photographer Dennis P. Klein captures the essence of Normandy in his stunning picture book, Normandy, 75 Years Later, in anticipation of the next year's seventy-fifth anniversary. Although Normandy is noted for its apple cider, Camembert cheese, cows, hedgerows, and stone farmhouses, the events of seventy-five years ago are what define the region today.
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 acknowledges that, while there are many books about the events of D-Day, very few speak of Normandy after the historic event.
He is firm in his purpose for the book saying, "This book is dedicated to the troops that fought so gallantly on foreign soil, especially those whose lives ended abruptly during the Normandy Campaign. Also, let us never forget the French civilians who lost their lives for the freedom of their fellow countrymen."
Normandy, 75 Years Later is available March 23, 2018 on Amazon.com, Shop.BookLogix.com, and DennisPKlein.com.
