DESCRIPTION: The battlefield guides of Major & Mrs Holt have long set the 
benchmark and this new book is what it claims, the definitive battlefield guide to the 
Normandy Landing Beaches. The text is crisp and comprehensive with excellent 
full colour images in illustration, together with a folded map of the beaches –    
Most Highly Recommended.

This book follows the very successful approach employed by the husband and wife 
team who celebrated their Diamond Anniversary in 2018. Much care and feeling has 
gone into a guide that provides everything the reader could require, whether they 
intended joining a guided tour, making their own private pilgrimage to the Normandy 
Landing Beaches, or taking an armchair tour of the sites.

The double-sided, folded map is to a scale of 1:116,000, printed in full colour and 
with one side showing the US beaches and the reverse showing the British and 
Canadian beaches, together with British Airborne Operations. This map is ideal for 
planning a visit and taking along to the beaches. Although the guide book itself is 
pocketable, it does require a large pocket and it has weight, so that the map is a very 
handy assistant, particularly in good weather when clothing may offer few suitable 
pockets. The map not only provides a normal map display but it also includes very 
good margin notes of memorials and other key features.

As with other guides from these authors, the content is broken into logical sections 
and the high quality colour images are reproduced through the body of the guide 
book. The considerable volume of information is easy to access. This is the ultimate 
guide and if only one is purchased, it must be this one.
