News Publication – ’44 in Combat from Normandy to the Ardennes


This is the second volume in the Spellmount Siegrfried Line Series. The author traces the Allies’ progress from the landings on the Normandy Beaches through to the Battle of the Bulge when the Germans made a final attempt at serious counter attack and came close to achieving their objectives. This is a carefully researched book by a prolific writer on military history and it is an authoritative account of the closing stages of the Second World War in Europe but it is also an involving account that conveys the realities of life for those who fought in these battles. There are the usual campaign maps illustrating the text, and there is a very good selection of bandw photographs in a bandw plate section.
