Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan UK, Nov 17, 2007 - Medical - 503 pages
The author argues that the successes and failures of D-Day, on both sides, cannot be explained by comparing the competing strategies of each side. Instead he provides an account of the battle through the overarching nature of the relationship between the leaders and their followers.
