D-DAY ATLAS: Anatomy of the Norman Campaign

CHARLES MESSENGER    Book Number: 86149    Product format: Paperback

The 75th Anniversary of the landings of the Allied forces on the continent are being commemorated this year, 2019, and what better way to understand them than through detailed maps and contemporary photographs. This vivid recreation of the D-Day invasion and its aftermath is told with an authoritative text by a noted military historian, chronicling the evolution of the invasion plan. It culminates in a day-by-day account of the landings by sea and by air on the Normandy beaches, followed by the grim six-week struggle to break through the German defences. The study also devotes space to the German point of view, based on latest archival research, and the organisation of the French Resistance in Northern and Western France. Allied soldiers had to learn to adapt the hard way in the claustrophobic Normandy bocage and eventually, after a lengthy phase of attrition, German Army Group B did eventually crumble. This spectacular Thames & Hudson publication has been produced in association with the team at Cartographica and includes 178 illustrations and 71 full colour maps plus specially commissioned reconstruction drawings. Large softback 8½" x 11½", 176pp, colour.
