Normandy, 1944 : Allied Landings and Breakout Paperback

Part of the Osprey Military Campaign S. series

Description

Osprey's Campaign title for the Normandy campaign of World War II (1939-1945).

D-Day, 6 June 1944, saw the largest amphibious landing operation in history.

From ports and harbours on the southern coast of England, an armada of troopships and landing craft launched the Allied return to mainland Europe.

Stephen Badsey provides a concise account of the Normandy campaign, from the fiercely contested landings, to the struggle to capture Caen, the 'Cobra' offensive and the dramatic pursuit of the Germans to the River Seine.

This was the crucial campaign of the Western theatre: after the Battle of Normandy the only question was how soon the war would end, not who would win it.
