On June 6 1944, the largest armada in history launched an assault on the Normandy beaches. It was the decisive moment in the second world war. So how did it feel to be there on that tumultuous day? To mark the 60th anniversary of D-day, the Guardian has unearthed a series of letters written home by the combatants. This website also includes a dispatch from Martha Gellhorn, the American war correspondent who joined the landings and several articles by David Woodward, the Manchester Guardian war correspondent, who was one of three journalists who were landed in France from the air.
