Another in the Images of War series takes the reader to the battle of the hedgerows in Normandy. This is a fairly concise look at the battle for Normandy, really concentrating on the struggle once the troops got off the beaches and pressed on to the battle of Saint-Lô. It looks at the opposing forces then tackles the American advance from the Omaha beach. There are maps to show the areas of conflict and over 150 photos of the action. It’s a good addendum to a more comprehensive study of the battle for Normandy.
