Front Cover
Naval Institute Press, 2006 - History - 292 pages
1 Review
A research analyst for the Center for Naval Analyses offers a historical account of the Royal and U.S. navies' involvement in one of the greatest amphibious assaults of modern history. It is a story of cooperation and, at times, discord between the two navies as they planned the naval portion of the Allied invasion of Normandy. With the evolution of amphibious warfare as a backdrop, the book has sufficient technical detail to satisfy the modern-day practitioner of amphibious warfare, yet it is written in a style that makes it accessible to the general public.
