On D-Day, 1944, the armies of six nations converged on the beaches of France and began the final dramatic chapter of WW II.

The Americans, British, Canadians, Poles, Free French and Germans each had specific goals. Politics shaped many military considerations; where one began and the other ended was often unclear.

"The analysis of this historic action is carried out on many levels. Keegan weighs national character, illuminates the strategy of Allied and Axis leaders, and reminds us of the part played by heroism, individual and collective, in the outcome." (B-O-T Editorial Review Service)
