Summary note:
"The first of two volumes that look at military operations -- the connecting link between specific battlefields and broader strategic goals -- against the German army during a pivotal year in World War II. Focusing here on those operations designed and executed on the Western Front by the Allied forces of the U.S., Great Britain, and Canada, Dick examines how and why the successful invasion of and breakout from Normandy foundered before a well-defended Wehrmacht, all within the context of the combatants' military thought and leadership, battlefield experiences, and logistical realities." -- Provided by publisher.
