More About The Americans at Normandy by John C. McManus
 
 
 
Overview
In this succeeding volume to "The Americans at D-Day, " McManus does the same for the Battle of Normandy as a whole. Never before has the American involvement in Normandy been examined so thoroughly or exclusively as in "The Americans at Normandy." For D-Day was only one part of the battle, and victory came from weeks of sustained effort and sacrifices made by Allied soldiers.
Presented here is the American experience during that summer of 1944, from the aftermath of D-Day to the slaughter of the Falaise Gap, from the courageous, famed figures of Bradley, Patton, and "Lightning" Joe Collins to the lesser-known privates who toiled in torturous conditions for their country.
Engrossing, lightning-quick, and filled with real human sorrow and elation, "The Americans at Normandy" honors those Americans who lost their lives in foreign fields and those who survived. Here is their story, finally told with the depth, pathos, and historical perspective it deserves.
