This comprehensive history of the Normandy invasion during World War II was written by the commander of the French 2nd Armoured Division who landed and took part in the D-Day campaign.

General Jean Compagnon later commanded the 12th Armoured Cavalry, whose tanks were the first to enter Strasbourg on November 23, 1944.

How did the landing operations prepared by Churchill and Roosevelt from 1940 onwards, requested by Stalin in 1941, manage to catch Hitler by surprise even though he had known they were inevitable from as early as 1942?

What were the crucial moments during the historic day which saw the opening of a second front?

How, after two months in Normandy when little headway was made, would the breakout at Avranches make the Overlord landing into the strategic decisive victory of World War II?

With the mature emotion of someone who has lived through such historic events, the author recounts the story of the preparation and execution of the operation that was to put an end to the totalitarian holocausts, liberate Europe and re-establish the world balance of power.

This book received the French Academy’s Marshal Foch award and is profusely illustrated with full-colour and black-and-white photographs and maps.
