D-Day: the Battle for Normandy
"In the whole history of war," wrote Stalin to Churchill, "there has never been such an undertaking." Those who took part in this great cross-Channel invasion, whether soldier, sailor or airman, would never forget the sight. Nor, of course, would the German defenders alerted at the last moment on the Normandy coasts. It was by far the largest invasion fleet ever known.
Making use of overlooked and new material from over 30 archives, Antony Beevor's D-Day is the most vivid and well-researched account yet of the Battle of Normandy. Soft cover, photographs, 590 pages.
