One day in a very long war

£2.99

Product description

This text gives an overview of a single day in World War II - 25th October 1944, as it was seen on all fronts. Through a succession of vignettes, showing the immediacy of the day's events, it describes a world-wide conflict as it is acted out by Allied and Axis forces. Among the set-piece actions of the day are: the titanic naval battle of Leyte Gulf in the Philipines; Hitler planning an Ardennes offensive which is to lead to the Battle of the Bulge; the eruption of the Red Army into Eastern Europe; a frustrated wolf-pack in the Atlantic; the saturation bombing of Essen and Hamburg; V2 rocket attacks on London; and the highly secret Manhattan project.
