The mass of ships, the troops battling ashore, and then the fight to break out from the beaches, naturally has taken the main focus of historians and commentators. However, D-Day was an equally important battle from the air. Without the air superiority established over the battlefields, the bombing of important targets, the ranks of ground attack aircraft in circuit awaiting calls from the ground forces for support and roaming free to take out targets of opportunity, and the planes and gliders delivering airborne troops to take and hold key bridges, D-Day could have turned out very differently. This book comprises concise text to introduce sections of images and for captions and extended captions. The sections follow logically the stages of the invasion and break out. The images are first rate and include very rare images from private collections. This is a book that no enthusiast's library can afford to be without.
