After D-Day: Operation Cobra and the Normandy Breakout (Stackpole Military History)by James Jay Carafano
Synopses & Reviews
After storming the beaches on D-Day, June 6, 1944, the Allied invasion of France bogged down in seven weeks of grueling attrition in Normandy. On July 25, U.S. divisions under Gen. Omar Bradley launched Operation Cobra, an attempt to break out of the hedgerows and begin a war of movement across France. Despite a disastrous start, with misdropped bombs killing hundreds of GIs, Cobra proved to be one of the most pivotal battles of World War II, successfully breaking the stalemate in Normandy and clearing a path into occupied France.
Offers a narrative look at Operation Cobra, the American effort to break out of the Normandy hedgerows in July 1944 and clear a path to Paris and occupied France.
