Book Summary

D-Day, the largest amphibious invasion in history, took place on 6 June 1944. The subsequent battle of Normandy involved over a million men, and helped seal the fate of The Third Reich. This is a graphic account of the planning and execution of Operation Overlord, as well as the campaign that effectively destroyed the German forces in France, opening the way for the Allied advance. Filled with information on key personnel, weapons and military units, this fascinating book is enhanced through the inclusion of more than 35 facsimile documents.
