You can discover more details about them at The three winners will be drawn at random from those with the correct answer. 

The Waffen-SS in Normandy

The Casemate Illustrated series tackles the desperate German attempts to stem the Allied invasion of Normandy. This one tells the story of the elite Waffen-SS units that Hitler personally meddled with. Discover their performance as Allied Operations Goodwood and Cobra put them to the test. There’s details on the tanks, vehicles and over 150 photos. Now, you can win one of the copies as part of a three-book bundle.

The Falaise Pocket

When the German defences were destroyed, they were forced back into the Falaise Pocket, where the Allies sought to encircle and destroy what was left. This is the story of how overwhelming Allied air power and fresh troops on the ground created a massive killing field from which only relatively few German troops escaped. Win a copy of this Casemate Illustrated title as part of a three prize bundle.

The D-Day Training Pocket Manual 1944

While it might be styled like a flippant, how to win the war book, this pocket-sized guide is actually stuffed full of information from genuine British and American manuals on how they were to storm the beaches on D-Day. With copious illustrations and a wealth of detail you’ll understand just what a complex operation this was and how difficult it was going to be.


Simply answer the question below.
