The Normandy Battles - Bob Carruthers; Simon Trew

Cassell, 2000, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Near Fine - in Near Fine DJ.

On the 6th of June 1944 – D-Day – the Allies launched Operation Overlord against the Germans in Western Europe. The greatest amphibious assault yet known in the history of warfare began landing on the Normandy coast in a complete tactical surprise. By nightfall five Allied divisions were ashore and a firm toehold established on the beaches. But the great triumph of D-day and the Allied landings was soon to deteriorate into grim and bloody fighting as the Allied advance was reduced to a crawl by the German Army in the bocage of Normandy. Lustrated throughout with rare archive pictures, this account captures in detail the real story of the Normandy Battle, which saw some of the fiercest fighting on any front in the Second World War.
