An in-depth illustrated history of the Campaign to liberate Brittany in World War two. For a few brief days in August 1944 the world turned its attention to this French province, the fighting in Brittany pitted some of the best American tank units under George Patton against General Ramcke's German paratroopers. The battle for Brittany was crucial to the logistical plans for the Allies' progress in Europe after the D-Day landings and deserves the attention it receives in this book. The author explains in detail the astonishing armoured thrusts of the 4th and 6th Armoured Divisions, as well as General Ernest's cavalry Task Force A, into Brittany. Their exploits represent some of the finest examples of armoured units rampaging behind enemy lines. Authentic: based on in-depth research into archives and interviews with veterans, never-before published material, period photographs, logistical tables, maps, uniform reconstructions.
