The experiences and achievements of the United States land sea and air forces on 6 June 1944 and the weeks following have been deservedly well chronicled. Omaha Beach saw the fiercest fighting of the whole OVERLORD invasion and the opposition faced in the US sector shocked commanders and men at all levels. The outcome was in the balance and thanks to the courage and determination shown by the attackers game-changing failure was narrowly averted.

This superb Images of War book examines using contemporary and modern images and maps, the course of the campaign and its implication for both the American troops and the civilian population of Normandy.

The wealth of revealing images are enhanced by full captions and the author's thoroughly researched text.

The result is a graphic reminder of the liberation of Northern France and the extraordinary sacrifice made by men not just of the United States military but the other Allied nations.
