The Allied landings at Omaha and the other Normandy beaches on D-day are perhaps the best-known incidents of World War II. Few today remember that the Normandy landing was secured only after a further two months of hard fighting. Victor Brooks presents a complete picture of the campaign in Normandy, with full coverage of all the nations taking part and a candid look at the rivalry between the different Allied nations and the different German branches of service. While intended as an introduction, The Normandy Campaign takes a new and critical look at the war aims of the countries involved, and explodes a number of myths about the numbers of troops involved and the effectiveness of their weaponry. Information about atrocities on both sides and friendly fire incidents appear here that will be new to many. The author also uses his unique grading system to reviewuate the relative performance of the major military and civilian leaders during the course of the campaign.
