A Battleground Guide by Paul R. Williams. Using rare archive material, this book takes the reader on a fascinating journey along the coast that Hitler was wrongly convinced would be the site of the Allied landings.

BATTLEGROUND NORMANDY: OPERATION TOTALIZE

by Tim Saunders


A Battleground Guide by Tim Saunders. By early August 1944 the Germans fighting in Normandy had been worn down by the battles around Caen, while to the west, the American breakout was finally gaining momentum. Now was the time to launch II Canadian Corps south towards Falaise. With much of the German armour having been stripped away for the Mortain Counter-Attack, hopes ran high that the Corps, reinforced with British tanks, the 51st Highland and the Polish Armoured Divisions, would repeat the success of their predecessors in the Battle of Amiens. Operation Totalize is renowned for the death of SS panzer Ace Michael Wittmann.

BATTLEGROUND NORMANDY: HITLER'S ATLANTIC WALL

by Paul R. Williams



A Battleground Guide by Paul Williams. This highly informative book begins with an examination of the background to Germany's primary military objectives in relation to the western end of their self-styled 'Fortress Europe' including the early foundation of shore defences in northern France. In 1941, there was a switch in emphasis of the Atlantic Wall's role from attack to defence. Beach defences became more elaborate and the Nazi-controlled Todt Organisation began a massive building programme constructing new bunkers and reinforcing existing sites, using forced labour.
