The success of the Allied invasion of Normandy was never inevitable; to the contrary, Operation Overlord was fraught with risk and the potential of its failure loomed large. The defenses of the Atlantic Wall combined with Hitler's refusal to allow Rommel the freedom to station the powerful German armoured reserve forces closer to the Normandy coast instead of far inland, were compelling factors in the successful Allied invasion. What also emerges from this landmark book are clear answers to the longstanding unresolved questions of exactly how effective the Atlantic Wall was, and the important role it played in the development of Allied thinking and planning for the cross-Channel invasion of June 6, 1944.
