About this Product

An excellent account of one of the greatest and most dramatic military operations ever undertaken. The authors possess an intimate knowledge of the ground and a clear understanding of their sources, and have produced not only a lively and well illustrated narrative, but also a powerful and incisive analysis of some of the key reasons for the Allies' triumph. Possibly the best single-volume study of the D-Day landings currently available.' - Dr Simon Trew, Department of War Studies, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst
