PRODUCT TYPE Paperback (Paperback)

Description

A full and useful assembly of all 96 General, Situation & Sketch maps from the UNITED KINGDOM MILITARY SERIES: OFFICIAL CAMPAIGN HISTORY - VICTORY IN THE WEST: THE BATTLE OF NORMANDY & THE DEFEAT OF GERMANY.

The maps are in chronological order, full size and faithful to the original cartography in all respects, allowing the reader to follow the liberation of German-occupied western Europe in 1944-45, from D-Day itself with its airborne assaults, the naval bombardment and seaborne landings on Gold, Juno, Sword, Utah and Omaha beaches. The hard fighting as the Allies secured their bridgehead and pushed inland, capturing Cherbourg and Caen, and enveloped the main German defending armies at the battle of the Falaise Gap. The failure of the British attempt to outflank the Germans with the airborne landings at Arnhem. The slow Allied advance into the Low Countries. Hitler's attempted audacious counterattack through the snowbound Ardennes which, after initial success, was thrown back in the 'Battle of the Bulge'. The final fighting and the crossing of the Rhine in March 1945.

This is an important and official map collection with both General Maps, Situation Maps, Diagrams and Sketch Maps, and should be part of every serious military scholar's library.
