Six Armies in Normandy : From D-Day to the Liberation of Paris June 6th-August 25th,1944 Paperback
by John Keegan
The Allied assault on Normandy beaches was an almost flawless success, but it was to take three months of bitter fighting before the German defence of Normandy finally collapsed and Paris was liberated.
In this masterly and highly individual account of that struggle, the reader is subjected to the gruelling ordeals confronted by the combatants - each encounter related from the point of view of a different nationality.
While transcending conventional military history, it provides an intensely vivid picture of one of the Second World War's most crucial campaigns.
