D-Day: The Battle for Normandy

D-Day: The Battle for Normandy by Anthony Beevor, 624 pages.

Beevor can always be counted on to give the details of a large military operation or field of battle from a wide variety of points of view. He explores the invasion of Normandy from the viewpoint of French civilians, partisans, German officers and soldiers, allied officers and soldiers, and politicians and leaders of all participating countries. He has no favorites and he is critical of leaders of both sides. Beevor will always tell you something you have not heard before and is always worth reading.
