This graphic nonfiction book does an excellent job of portraying the events of the invasion of Normandy without being too graphic, which makes it appropriate for upper-elementary through high school.  The book begins with an introduction to the events leading up to D-Day, continues with a breakdown of what happened on each beach, and ends with several pages of text summarizing the entire topic.  The book includes a timeline, biographical information about military leaders, a glossary, a bibliography and an index.   

Summary:  This is a graphic nonfiction treatment of the D-Day invasion during World War II, for grades 4-12.
