Told in full, in never-before-seen detail, this is the first complete illustrated history of Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of France. The book's on-the-ground and behind-the-scenes accounts of both the attacking Allies and the defending Germans offer a uniquely broad perspective on the Normandy landing and subsequent battles.
From the invasion to the breakout, to Patton's opening of the road to Brittany, the Mayenne, and the Loire, and finally, with de Gaulle's triumphant return to Paris, the Battle of Normandy was won at a terrible price. This grand history covers all aspects of the battle.
