On June 6, 1944, American and British armies staged the greatest amphibious landing in history. It began Operation Overlord, the battle for the liberation of Europe. Max Hastings, a war correspondant at the time, made a study of D-Day and the battle of Normandy, and his book, far from traditional, overturns a host of national legends.
It describes in graphic detail the experience of Normandy, as Hastings follows the men and officers of the British, American and German forces all through the bitter weeks of this battle.
