Normandy by W.Denis Whitaker
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Based on gripping eyewitness accounts this study reinforces the contention that Allied soldiers performed much better during this famous campaign than had previously been believed, helping to demolish the myth that when Allied and German soldiers met on equal numbers the Germans always prevailed. Interspersed with fascinating personal anecdotes from soldiers which take the reader to the heart of the battlefield, this is an exciting and insightful addition to the literature on the Normandy Campaign.
