In the first two volumes of his bestselling Liberation Trilogy, Rick Atkinson recounted how the American-led coalition fought through North Africa and Italy to the threshold of victory. Now he tells the most dramatic story of all - the titanic battle for Western Europe.

D-Day marked the commencement of the European war's final campaign, and Atkinson's riveting account of that bold gamble sets the pace for the masterly narrative that follows. The brutal fight in Normandy, the liberation of Paris, the disaster that was Market Garden, the horrific Battle of the Bulge, and finally the thrust to the heart of the Third Reich - all these historic events and more come alive with a wealth of new material and a mesmerizing cast of characters.

With the stirring final volume of this monumental trilogy, Rick Atkinson's remarkable accomplishment is manifest. He has produced the definitive chronicle of the war that unshackled a continent and preserved freedom in the West.

I was hooked from the first page . . . a gripping account * BBC History *
[Atkinson's] storytelling verve and infectious, boyish enthusiasm swept me up and carried me along from D-Day in June 1944, all the way through Normandy, Paris, Arnhem and the Bulge to the final apocalyptic reckoning ... gripping and harrowing ... for sheer relentless readability, Atkinson is hard to beat. * Telegraph *
For history buffs or anyone interested in how men react in extremis ... top storytelling -- Antony Beevor * Mail on Sunday *
as fast and furious as the conflict it describes * The Times *
Superbly researched . . . an epic tale in Atkinson's expert hands. He never stoops to breathless prose in this perfectly paced account, and he always comes up with fresh and revealing details -- Antony Beevor * Sunday Times *
