Description of this Book

An entirely new perspective on one of the most important moments in recent history from renowned World War Two historian James Holland.The well-trod narrative follows the view that the Allies, led by the USA, had the material advantage, but the Germans were superior in terms of training, tactical ability and weaponry. To James Holland, this view of the Germans is nonsense. In his new book on D-Day, he will be using the opportunity to halt this ongoing mythologising in its tracks.
