Book Description

In any military operation throughout history, few 24-hour periods have been as crucial as that of 6th June 1944. With the aid of specially commissioned maps, D-Day: The First 24 Hours series gives the dramatic history of the first 24 hours of the Normandy landings, and explains in detail the events that occurred in each landing zone. In this third volume of the series, the book describes the American landings on Omaha and Utah beaches. The fighting on Omaha was some of the most desperate fighting took place, but the beach was eventually secured. The book also includes the famous operation by the US Rangers to capture the gun position at Pointe du Hoc, successfully scaling a sheer cliff face in the teeth of the defenders' fire.

With colour and black & white photographs, the book is a guide to key events in the first 24 hours of the D-Day landings that saw the Allies successfully achieve a foothold in Northern Europe.

2.0 out of 5 stars These books are more like lists of divisions 3 Jan. 2015
By Snowy Range - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These books are more like lists of divisions, battalions and regiments that fought there. There is very little of the human element here. However, there is a good timeline given as well as some good maps.
