Firing on Fortress Europe, Paperback / softback Book

Firing on Fortress Europe Paperback / softback


On 6 June 1944, HMS Belfast supported troops in action on the beaches of Normandy in the campaign to liberate Europe from Nazi Germany.

HMS Belfast at D-Day recounts this extraordinary story, focusing on the dramatic events of 6 June but setting the context of the ship's history in the Arctic Convoy Service and Battle of North Cape.

It describes the build-up to D-Day as seen and experienced by Belfast's people, and explains her role in the longer Battle for Normandy.

Using first-hand accounts from IWM's rich collection of oral testimonies, diaries, and memoirs along with over 200 colour photographs, HMS Belfast at D-Day brings to life her leading role in the largest invasion operation in history.
