Waterstones Says

Boasting 71 full colour maps as well as specially commissioned reconstruction drawings and contemporary photographs, this is the definitive volume for all readers wanting an in-depth understanding of the Normandy landings and subsequent military campaign.

A vivid re-creation of the D-Day invasion and its aftermath, told through detailed maps, authoritative text by a noted military historian and contemporary photographs.

This powerful study chronicles the evolution of the invasion plan and culminates in a day-by-day account of the landings by sea and by air on the Normandy beaches, followed by the grim six-week struggle to break through the German defences. An important feature is the space devoted to the German point of view, based on the latest archival research, and the organization of the French Resistance in northern and western France.

At the heart of the book are 71 maps in full colour, many drawing in detail on those used by the Allies in 1944. Specially commissioned reconstruction drawings and contemporary photographs help bring the beaches and bocage of Normandy to life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Well-informed and clearly illustrated … excellent' - Guardian

'Messenger’s knowledge of his subject comes through in the clear, info-packed, subtopic-laden essays' - Publisher's Weekly

'Wonderful ... a new preface by James Holland aptly sets the scene, highlighting the scale of the landings. If you are completely new to D-Day, this is the ideal start. Yet, even if you are inherently familiar with this all-important battle, The D-Day Atlas is still a fantastic companion' - Britain at War
