D-Day, the largest amphibious invasion in history, took place on 6 June 1944. The subsequent battle of Normandy involved over a million men, and helped seal the fate of the Third Reich. D-Day: The Files is a unique multimedia archive providing a full account of the planning and execution of Operation Overlord, as well as the campaign which effectively destroyed the German forces in France, opening the way for the Allied advance.
This insightful book includes D-Day: The Concise History by Richard Holmes, a beautifully reproduced photo album with over 100 contemporary photographs, a giant fold-out Overlord campaign map showing 20 separate battlefield situations in colour, a CD of veteran first-hand accounts and 12 facsimile documents.
