9780500291191: The D-Day Atlas: Anatomy of the Normandy Campaign

Now available in paperback for the seventieth anniversary: a compelling history of the D-Day invasion told through superb cartography and authoritative text

D-Day was the culmination of four years of planning and preparation that began in the summer of 1940 when Britain stood alone and under imminent threat of German cross-Channel invasion. Charles Messenger’s vivid study of the landings and subsequent campaign chronicles the gradual evolution of the invasion plan, encompassing the intelligence efforts, the Ango-US strategic debate over where the Allies should attack, and the elaborate deception put in place to fool the Germans about the true D-Day objective. The build-up culminates in a day-by-day account of the landings by sea and by air on the beaches of Normandy―Utah,Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword―and the ensuing grim struggle for six weeks to break through the German defenses.

At the heart of this fascinating re-creation of the D-Day campaign are seventy-one maps in full color, which incorporate the latest computer technology. Many are in fact based on the very same maps used by the Allies in 1944. Specially commissioned reconstruction drawings and 82 contemporary photographs help bring the beaches of Normandy to life. 178 illustrations, including 71 color maps

About the Author:

Charles Messenger has published over thirty books, including The Second World War in the West. He lives in London.

From Publishers Weekly:

The 178 illustrations of this annotated atlas include 71 full-color maps, which stand out among its rather indifferent images. A veteran of Britain's Royal Tank Regiment and Territorial Army, historian and defense analyst Messenger (The Second World War in the West) is the author of more than 30 books and has written and directed three BBC Worldwide television series. His knowledge of his subject comes through in the clear, info-packed, subtopic-laden essays that make up the five chapters here, systematically taking readers through D-Day and its aftermath.
