This is a timeless classic - may I suggest the Library preserve the book by replacing the old, falling apart paperback, with a hard covered copy?
A classic that needs to be kept for posterity!

"Believe me, Lang, the first twenty-four hours of the invasion will be decisive... the fate of Germany depends on the outcome... for the Allies, as well as Germany, it will be the longest day."
--Field Marshall Erwin Rommel to his aide, April 22, 1944.
