Noted British military historian John Keegan takes an innovative approach to the invasion of Normandy, correctly observing that, while colossal, it was merely the beginning of a series of furious battles in northern France. He accordingly tackles not only the actions of June 6, 1944, but the subsequent Normandy campaigns by five Allied nations and their German opponent. 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, Keegan provides an exciting chronological account of the action in Normandy that offers stirring accounts of considerable depth about specific tactical decisions. Beyond the vivid battle stories, Six Armies in Normandy will engage those who study battles and tactics intellectually and also provides valuable insight into the diplomatic activity between Allied nations necessary for victory in Europe. --Robert McNamara
