DESCRIPTION: Haynes have continued their WWII series based on news from the Daily Mirror. Images of newsprint and photographs are in black & white. This provides a unique presentation of the story of the final stages of the war in Europe.

With the Russian Army advancing on Germany from the East, the Allied landings in Normandy placed Germany in a vice that steadily contracted, resulting in defeat for the Nazis.

The Normandy landings were an amazing feat of military planning, determination and technology. The largest amphibious landings ever attempted involved the construction of a prefabricated port system that was towed across from Britain to be assembled to provide the necessary port facilities without requiring the capture of established ports. Pluto, an underwater fuel pipeline also provided the essential fuel for the armour and other vehicles necessary in supporting the advancing troops as they broke out of their beachheads.

This collection of Daily Mirror news pages provides a contemporary account of the preparation for D-Day, its execution and the long march from the beaches to Berlin and German surrender.

A great story as it was told at the time.
