Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

After the D-Day landing in Normandy, Allied forces were stopped cold by German resistance. Finally, US troops smashed through the German wall of fire and opened the road to Berlin. Carafano demonstrates that what carried the battle was effective leadership by field grade and junior officers as well as sergeants and privates, who seized initiative and took decisive action to exploit sudden battlefield opportunities. Combat narratives are illuminated by eyewitness reports. Carafano has held a variety of positions with the US Army.
