OPERATION D-DAY Day by Day by Anthony Hall


Anthony Hall has superbly written and researched one of the greatest military operations of World War II on June 6, 1944, 50,000 Allied troops in 3,000 landing craft poured onto the beaches of Normandy, supported by thousands of other vessels and aircraft, thus embarking on the invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe. Code-named Operation Overlord, the D-Day landings signalled the beginning of the end of Hitler's Germany. Operation Overlord was, and remains, the largest amphibious assault ever conducted and is one of the most fascinating and evocative battles fought in history. D-Day Operation Overlord Day-by-Day is a chronological approach to the landings, allowing the reader to immediately see the preparations made for the invasion of Normandy and the critical actions on the beaches and farther inland. Meticulously covers from the initial landings on the morning of June 6 on beaches Gold, Juno, Sword, Utah, and Omaha to the point where all five landing forces had joined on June 12.
