Description
D-Day, 6 June 1944, saw the largest amphibious landing operation in history. From ports and harbors on the southern coast of England, an armada of troopships and landing craft launched the Allied return to mainland Europe. This assault was preceded by airborne landings at key sites and accompanied by massive air support. Stephen Badsey provides a concise account of "Operation Overlord", from the fiercely contested landings, to the struggle to capture Caen, the "Cobra" offensive and the dramatic pursuit of the Germans to the Seine River.
