James Holland

James Holland is a British historian, novelist and broadcaster. He specialises in the military encounters of World War II. The younger brother of Tom Holland, a writer on ancient history, James Holland published his first non-fiction work, Fortress Malta: An Island Under Siege, 1940-1943, in 2003. He has since produced numerous books on different theatres of the conflict, from Italy’s Sorrow: A Year of War, 1944-1945 to The Battle of Britain: Five Months That Changed History, which have drawn plaudits for their humanity, as well as contributing military titles to the Ladybird Expert series.

His latest book is Normandy ’44, an account of the D-Day landings.

Noted historian James Holland attacks the myths around the D-Day campaign in this masterly exercise in revisionist history. Whilst the initial offensive may have been a spectacular victory for the allies, what followed was a punitive campaign with appalling loss of life on both sides. With a plethora of testimonies from foot soldiers to senior officers this really is the definitive story.
