Battle : Normandy 1944 - Life and Death in the Heat of Combat

£7.99

Product description

It is Normandy, July 28, 1944. Outside Caen, the Americans have broken through the German defences. Six stalemated British divisions redeploy to join the American attack. The ensuing battle involves infantry, tanks and artillery working together. The battle plans, which had seemed achievable, are a nightmarish botch. Some men fail, some just do their duty, some excel. It is a battle like any other. Ken Macksey has selected a real engagement in which he took part and has related authentic incidents played out by participants, weaving a story using all his experience. The result is a insight into what really happens in the life and death of warfare.

Excellent pages, minor edge and D/J wear.
