Synopses & Reviews
For seven weeks after D-Day, hundreds of thousands of Allied troops were bottled up along the landing beaches. Finally, 3,000 American and British planes bombarded a narrow path into enemy territory, and the Allies surrounded 100,000 die-hard Germans at Falaise. "Breuer's stirring reconstruction of the battle as seen from both sides makes this one of the best WWII books of recent years".--JOHN BARKHAM REVIEWS. 34 photos.
