The famous D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 marked the beginning of Operation Overlord, the battle for the liberation of Europe. Max Hastings' acclaimed account overturns many traditional legends in this memorable study. Drawing together the eyewitness accounts of survivors from both sides, plus a wealth of previously untapped sources and documents, Overlord provides a brilliant, controversial perspective on the devastating battle for Normandy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A masterly book, rich in insight, shrewd and weighty in judgement...Max Hastings stands in the first rank of writers on modern war. * Financial Times *
Max Hastings's reportage of the battle is not unworthy to stand with that of the best journalists and writers who witnessed it . . . A tribute to his skills as a historian. -- John Keegan * New York Times Book Review *
A fine account of the strategy and tactics of the campaign. The author has been shot at himself . . . This has done marvels for quickening his understanding of what such landings are like, and adds an extra cutting edge to his book. He goes over a well-worn path, full of pitfalls, and falls into none of them. * Economist *
