After Le Mur de l'Atlantique published in 2011, Lefranc's series of reports continues on the same principle - a thorough documentary exploration through the combination of drawing, text and photography - with another episode of capital importance in the Second World War. World War: The D-Day. Backed by abundant and rigorous documentation, the cartoonist Olivier Weinberg presents in a very vivid and precise way the major events of the D-Day landing of June 6, 1944 and the days that followed (without forgetting an intense preparation upstream), with the support of many vintage photographs. Written by a specialist in the history of the Second World War, Isabelle Bournier (cultural and educational director at the Memorial of Caen), the texts of the album summarize with much clarity the essentials of what you should know about this decisive event of our contemporary history. Various illustrated thematic sections (ships, vehicles, badges and uniforms, etc.) provide a useful counterpoint to this rich ensemble.
