Normandy, France - June 1944

Beyond the Beachhead
by Joseph Balkoski
List: $14.95, 304 pp. paperback

Originally published in 1989, Beyond the Beachhead became the standard for nearly all future histories of the WWII citizen-soldier. It illustrated the brutal realities of life on the front line through following the movements of one division circumflex--the 29th--during 45 days of combat from Omaha Beach to the liberation of St. Lo. Available for the first time in trade paperback, this now-classic study of one division's experience set against the backdrop of the U.S. Army's tactical strategy is ...

D-Day June 6, 1944
by Stephen E. Ambrose
List: $17.00, 655 pp. paperback

Stephen E.

by John Keegan
List: $13.95, 365 pp. paperback

Focusing on specific actions, such as the U.S. 101st Airborne night drop into France and the British infantry battles surrounding the city of Caen, he ...

The Longest Day
by Cornelius Ryan
List: $13.00, 350 pp. paperback

Some 41 years after its first publication, Cornelius Ryan's The Longest Day still stands as one of the outstanding accounts of D-Day - June 6, 1944. Based largely upon the accounts of American, British, Canadian and German survivors of the assault on Normandy, Ryan offers many first hand accounts based on the memories of those who were there. Among those interviewed were Rommel's deputy, Generalmajor Hans Speidel, his aide, Capt. Helmuth Lange, and Rommel's widow, Frau Luci Marie Rommel. ...
