Bringing together essays on key aspects of the Normandy campaign from leading names in military history, this book re-examines the crucial issues and debates of the D-Day campaign.
Although it was the most important campaign fought by the Western Allies in World War II and was pivotal in determining the outcome of the war, there remains much to debate about D-Day. This volume tackles a range of core topics, placing them in their current historiographical context, to present new and sometimes revisionist interpretations of key issues. How effective was the deception plan used against the Germans? Can it be said that the German army was superior to the American, British and Canadian forces? Why did the allied armies become bogged down for two months and was the stalemate a product of poor allied operational technique or German tactical flair? How have we come to see or interpret the Normandy campaign through the media of cinema and TV?
As World War II is increasingly becoming a field of revisionism,this book sits squarely within growing debates and brings current thinking from leading military and strategic historians to a wider audience.
