Front Cover
Pen and Sword Military, May 25, 2004 - History - 112 pages
0 Reviews
This is a photographic record of the D-Day invasion that captures many different aspects of the air, sea and military campaign. A great majority of photographs are unlikely to have been seen by the general public and they have been reproduced directly from original negatives held by national archives in Britain and the USA. Lengthy captions describe the action portrayed in each photo and an introduction puts D-Day into its historical perspective. The book follows the invasion as it develops and contains chapters on Preparation, The Landings, Establishing the Beachhead, Moving inland and Sustaining the Advance.
