The Best Account of the Normandy Landings and Campain For Me,
This review is from: Six Armies In Normandy: From D-Day to the Liberation of Paris June 6th-August 25th,1944: From D-Day to the Liberation at Paris (Paperback)
I found this account of the Normandy Landings and Campaign a better read than the later and better know "Overlord" by Max Hastings . The author has explored the battle from the viewpoints of the various contributing armies and the appearance is that they are all given even weighting in the campaign as opposed to emphasis on the armies by numerical contribution.
"A Polish Battlefield" is how Falaise is referred to by this author. The reason is that the Polish armoured division was used to plug the gap in the Falaise pocket and took heavy fire and casualties as the escaping Germans attempted to fight their way past the Poles.
