Normandy Crucible

by Prados, John

Condition: See description

The title notwithstanding, this book really covers the battle for France, from the invasion preparations to the closing of the Falaise gap and the occupation of Paris. The opening chapter well describes the pre-invasion situation, from both the Allied and the German perspective. The general narrative is clear and effective, well written. The concluding chapter reviews the entire struggle and considers various alternative resolutions. Normandy Crucible concludes with a simulation in the appendix, an extensive set of footnotes, and a bibliography. The author, John Prados, has written many books on World War II. He is familiar with much of the relevant literature and knows how to present his own opinions carefully and clearly. The book is a good read.
