D-Day: The Battle for Normandy: Fine Signed First Edition With Pegasus Bridge Souvenir, Postcard & Event Flyer – Beevor, Antony

R450.00

The Normandy Landings that took place on D-Day involved by far the largest invasion fleet ever known. The scale of the undertaking was simply awesome. What followed them was some of the most cunning and ferocious fighting of the war, at times as savage as anything seen on the Eastern Front. As casualties mounted, so too did the tensions between the principal commanders on both sides. Meanwhile, French civilians caught in the middle of these battlefields or under Allied bombing endured terrible suffering. Even the joys of Liberation had their darker side. The war in northern France marked not just a generation but the whole of the post-war world, profoundly influencing relations between America and Europe.
Making use of overlooked and new material from over thirty archives in half a dozen countries, D-Day is the most vivid and well-researched account yet of the battle of Normandy. As with Stalingrad and Berlin, Antony Beevor’s gripping narrative conveys the true experience of war.

Hardcover, internally pages free from inscriptions, fresh white and crisp. Pages 591. Dust wrapper fine, in a protective cellophane for extra care. A beautiful copy. First Edition
