D-Day was arguably the hottest day in WW2, and Omaha beach was the hottest place in that day. Of all the beaches, this one, was the only place with real doubts about its outcome. This book, as usual with the Campaign series, analyse commanders, the planing, equipments and the armies, before and during the battle and it tells the story from both sides, attacker and defender. Then comes all the action in D-Day beaches in Omaha, also here, you'll find the effort of the rangers in Point-du-Hoc. Full color 3-D ‘bird’s-eye-views’, battle scenes and maps as well as color and black and white photographs that support's the text. It's a great book for enthusiasts of this type of history. I really enjoyed reading it, and every once in a while i reopen it again.
