This is an overview of the war on the western front and Italy that was made in the early summer of 1945 between the surrender of Nazi Germany in May 1945 and the Japanese surrender in August 1945. Its main strong point is the superb newsreel footage that tells the story of the war in France, the low countries and Germany. Its main weakness are parts of the commentary that are pompous and pretentious and are delivered in a posh accent that sounds like the writer is trying to imitate Shakespeare.

The story starts as the allied armies build up before landing on the beaches of Normandy on 6 June 1944. The Germans expect the landing to be on the narrowest part of the English Channel near Calais and they are totally unprepared when the allies chose Normandy instead. The landings succeed with far fewer casualties than expected, the allies fight their way through the bocage country of Normandy and after huge losses break out into the open country beyond. The Germans counter attack at Mortain and are cut to pieces around Falaise after which the allied armies race across France and liberate Paris. The advance slows down in Belgium and there is a frustrating stalemate in the Autumn which the allies unsuccessfully attempt to break by parachute landings in Holland. The Germans are eventually pushed back but they provide the allies with a nasty surprise by launching their last offensive just before Christmas in the Ardennes Forest. This fails to produce the breakthrough the Germans hoped for after which the allies counter attack over the Rhine, crash through a devastated Germany, join up with the Russians advancing westwards towards them and the war comes to an end in Europe in early May 1945.

A definitive record of D-Day and well worth it for anyone who has an interest in the second World War. As one would expect from the Imperial War Museum Archives, this CD is excellent.
