'Operation EPSOM',the first of Montgomery's major set-piece Normandy battles,marked a turning point in the Normandy campaign.Before 'EPSOM',there remained the chance that a German counter-strike in Normandy might seriously threaten the bridgehead.After 'EPSOM',the Allies retained the strategic initiative through to the liberation of France and Belgium.This was a battle in which highly trained but largely inexperienced British 'follow-up' divisions,newly arrived in Normandy, confronted some of the best equipped,best led and most experienced combat formations of the Third Reich.Beginning with a set-piece British assault on the Germans in dense terrain,the battle developed into a swirling armoured action on the open slopes of Hills 112 and 113,before the British Army grimly turned to defending their gains in the face of attacks by two SS-Panzer Korps.This entirely new study brings together previously unseen evidence to present an important Normandy battle in great detail.The unfolding action is illustrated using aerial photography of the battlefield and period Army maps.Supporting appendices offer vital background information including detailed orders of battle,analysis of tactics and lessons learned by both sides.
What else is so special about this book,is the discovery and use of superb aerial photos taken during the fighting by the RAF and period b/w maps.This imagery makes it possible to trace the course of the battle and to track the movement of the armoured regiments and troops of both sides.The effect is stunning and the reader is able to follow history in the making. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering its prices,weight allowances,dimensions and lowered its qualifying compensation rates too! So,please contact rpaxtonden@blueyonder.co.uk ,because of the value of this item,for correct,insured shipping/P+p quotes - particularly ALL overseas buyers - BEFORE ordering through the order page!
