Sand & Steel : The D-day Invasion And The Liberation Of France

Author(s): Peter Caddick-Adams
Sand and Steel gives us D-Day, the greatest and most consequential military operation of modern times, beginning with the years of painstaking and costly preparation, through to the pitched battles fought along France's northern coast, from Omaha Beach to the push east. In addition to the build-up to the invasion and the campaigns to deceive the Germans, Caddick-Adams gives a full and detailed account of the German preparations. The heart of the book is his narratives of the five beaches where the terrible drama played out, and the attempt by American, British, and Canadian soldiers to gain a foothold in Europe.
