9780117726598: Invasion Europe: D-Day Landings

The sheer scale of the invasion of Normandy - Operation Neptune - which was the precursor to the liberation of north-west Europe, has tended to overshadow the significance of two other important amphibious assaults of that year: the invasion of the South of France (Operation Dragoon) in August 1944, and the seizure of the island of Walcheren (Operation Infatuate) in November. This three volume boxed set includes previously unreleased official histories which give a narrative account of events: "Operation Neptune - The Landings in Normandy June 1944", "The Campaign in North West Europe June 1944 to May 1945" and "Invasion of the South of France Operation Dragoon August 1944". The "Battle Summaries" were written relatively soon after the events which they describe and are based on official documentary material which did not become available to the public until 1968. They provide a wealth of factual information, set in its correct strategic and tactical context. Written by naval officers who were versed in the art of naval operations, but were capable of synthesizing the vast quantity of source material, they provide a combination of straightforward, readable narrative and close attention to detail which should be useful for researchers and historians of the period. In addition to the three volumes, the set includes two folders containing maps and a booklet giving amendments to the original text.

Book Description H.M.S.O. The Ministry of Defence, 1994. Cloth. Book Condition: Mint. Dust Jacket Condition: MINT. The sheer scale of the invasion of Normandy - Operation Neptune - which was the precursor to the liberation of north-west Europe, has tended to overshadow the significance of two other important amphibious assaults of that year: the invasion of the South of France (Operation Dragoon) in August 1944, and the seizure of the island of Walcheren (Operation Infatuate) in November.

In addition to the three volumes, the set includes two folders containing maps and a booklet giving amendments to the original text. Published to coincide with thr Fiftieth anniversary of D-Day this is quite possibly the most authoritive account of the Allies onslaught on mainland Europe which was to defeat the Axis forces and bring about the end of the war in Europe. This copy is in MINT condition in a fine slipcase as issued. Please note that this slipcase containing all five volumes will be heavy to post and shipping costs will need to be quoted.
