Follow the D-Day landings through a unique collection of historical maps, expert commentary, and photographs

Written by a historian of military cartography, this is a unique insight into D-Day landings 70 years later. Along with the maps, key historical events are described, giving a plotted history the D-Day landings from an expert historian. Starting with a summary of World War II up to 1944, the book then covers deception schemes, terrain, intelligence, reconnaissance, and mapping. It discusses Operation NEPTUNE: naval and air bombardments and the assault landings, and Operation OVERLORD: establishing the beachheads. The final chapter discusses the break-out, German unconditional surrender; and VE Day.
