The story of the greatest invasion in history, as told by a master military engineer Thousands of men desperately struggling through the surf, blood spilling into the sea and mud, bullets whizzing by their ears—this is the Far Shore of Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. Here, we see D-Day through the eyes of an experienced engineer, brought out of a brief retirement to help make this invasion and eventual Allied victory possible: Rear Admiral Edward Ellsberg. The final book in Ellsberg’s World War II trilogy, The Far Shore takes the reader right up to the front lines. In Under the Red Sea Sun and No Banners, No Bugles , Rear Admiral Ellsberg cleaned up impressive wrecks in the Red Sea and North Africa. He answers the call to action despite his advancing age and failing heart, to once again do the impossible. Ellsberg is tasked with floating the artificial harbors that are key to Operation Overlord. Ellsberg, a celebrated writer in addition to his gifts as a naval engineer, pulls no punches in this firsthand account of the preparations and bravery necessary to win on D-day.
