How the landings became a success and started the final phase of the war are examined in a new book.
Everyone has seen films or read books about the drama of D-Day. It is now time to focus on what a tremendous amount of work went into the planning of the D-Day landings by the British and also by the Germans who were expecting an invasion on the French coast.
This dramatic new study from The History Press investigates the great feats of unique problem solving that enabled each side to prepare for such an important invasion. Military historian Anthony Tucker-Jones brings his expert eye to bear on the D-Day landings and subsequent Normandy campaign, re-assessing the technical ingenuity required through the eyes of those who fought there, and vividly revealing how each side managed, whether dealing the challenges of crossing the Channel safely or in defence of the French coast.
