Summary
"The Allied landings on the coast of Normandy on June 6, 1944, have assumed near-mythic status in the annals of World War II. Now Olivier Wieviorka brings the Normandy campaign back down to earth in a balanced and honest account that narrates the titanic enterprise from the planning stages to the Allied entry into Paris." "In addition to describing the landings with precision and drama, Wieviorka covers the planning and diplomatic background, Allied relationships, German defensive preparations, the morale of the armies, economics and logistics, political and military leaders, and civilians' and soldiers' experience of the fighting."--BOOK JACKET
