    75 years ago, on 6 June 1944, the greatest seaborne invasion in history took place. D-Day saw an epic battle involving 156,000 men, 7,000 ships and 20,000 armoured vehicles. Giles Milton’s bold new history, D-Day: The Soldiers' Story, narrates the day's events through the tales of survivors from all sides: the teenage Allied conscript, the crack German defender, the French resistance fighter: from the military architects at Supreme Headquarters to the young schoolboy in the Wehrmacht's bunkers. It lays bare the absolute terror of those trapped in the frontline of Operation Overlord. He will be joined by author Bali Rai, whose novel Voices: Now or Never, a Dunkirk Story, brings a young soldier, Private Fazal Khan, from his home in India to the battlefields of the Second World War. This special Derby Book Festival event will also include music and dance from the period to commemorate this historic event. There will be an interval during the event.

It places her imagined, fictional characters in the midst of real figures such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Millais and Lizzie Siddal. It tells the story of Iris, an apprentice doll-maker who dreams of being a painter, and of Silas, a curiosity collector enchanted by the strange and beautiful with ambitions of founding a museum dedicated to his macabre obsessions. This debut novel was bought after a 14-way auction, with international rights sold to over 30 territories so far. TV rights have already been snapped.
