This classic text describes the build-up of the invasion of Europe, and the scenes at the beach-head and in the "bocage" of Normandy. It also discusses the disputes among the Allies, the Anglo-American difficulties over Grand strategy, and the friction between Hitler and his generals which culminated in the plot of July 20th 1944, as well as the pincer movements of the Russians and the Anglo-American forces which brought Europe to victory.

Wilmot offers a journalistic view of the struggle to liberate Europe from the iron grip of the Third Reich. He follows the Allied efforts from the buildup to the Normandy invasion to the long, hard push through Europe, the assassination attempts against Hitler by his own commanders, and the final defeat. This solid single-volume history debuted in 1987.
