This is an auction for FIGHTING THEM ON THE BEACHES: THE D-DAY LANDINGS, JUNE 6 1944 by Nigel Cawthorne. reviews:

"Until one reads about D-Day, it is perhaps not quite clear how dramatic an action the Normandy landings were. Nor how costly they were. In a dramatic detailed account of the planning and operation, from both sides, Nigel Cawthorne sets the record straight. Fortunately Herr Hitler did not listen to many of his generals in the field, a decision that - fortunately for us - cost him and his forces dearly. The horrors that the troops encountered are splendidly retold in this book and the acts of bravery by all and sundry are brought clearly home."

"FIGHTING THEM ON THE BEACHES tells the story of one of the largest and most meticulously organised seaborne invasions in the history of warfare - the Allied landings of June 6, 1944: D-Day. As the parachutists and glider troops of the US and British airborne divisions, went in on the night of June 5, Allied shipping began massing in the Channel. At dawn on June 6, waves of assault craft hit the Normandy beaches. British, American, Canadian, Polish and Free French troops streamed ashore to storm the defences of the Atlantic Wall in the teeth of over-whelming enemy firepower. By midnight on D-Day, 150,000 Allied troops were ashore and the process of consolidating the beachheads and pushing inland had begun."
