This is a very comprehensive account of 352 Infanterie Division which held the line at Omaha and was eventually crushed six weeks later at St Lo. Roughly half the book is devoted to the run-up to and fighting on D-Day, the rest of the volume is devoted to the battles inland.
It's copiously illustrated and packed with first-hand accounts which bring the men to life. There are also scores of images from private collections - most of them you won't have seen before.
If you're interested in D-Day/Omaha Beach/German Army/Normandy, it's a must and fills in one more piece of the important jigsaw of the men defending the beaches.
