Three generations take one "short" day to visit Normandy. For soldiers June 6, 1944 was the longest day of their lives. Years later when Tyler Hill visited Normandy, he felt like for him, it was the shortest day. In this book Tyler hopes to persuade people to honor the soldiers by spending one short day in this inspiring place. What made Tyler's trip special was his grandparents going. His grandfather had wanted to see Normandy his entire life. Knowing he was alive on this date and seeing his reaction to coming here, Tyler had to write this book. While the area's top guide took them to the sites, Tyler was busy taking thorough notes. This book is a compilation of those notes and what the day meant to Tyler, whose generation has fortunately not lived through a day this brutal. The book opens with a fictitious story of a WW II veteran telling a class of h.s. students about the invasion he fought in.
