DIVISIONS OF THE NORMANDY LANDINGS

12,50 €
Many books have been published on the Normandy Landings and the Battle of Normandy for 70 years. There was, however, a summary work that looked at the linchpin of any modern army in the field: divisions. Benoît Rondeau revisits the entirety of the Battle of Normandy by presenting fifty or so units among the most representative. Some like the "Big Red One" or the "Panzer Lehr" are passed on to posterity, others, less known, are highlighted by the author. This one, relying on a solid and precise documentation, decrypts the commitment of the main formations in a fluid and well-documented style. The main characteristics of the units, their major engagements during the Battle of Normandy and uniform information illustrated by many mannequins in period dress provide a wealth of information to the reader. Benoît Rondeau offers us an unpublished synthesis about a battle on which we thought we had already written everything.
