Overview
 
Stanley. A different view of D-Day and just beyond, showing the well-known events using aerial photos - the RAF and USAAF imagery used is almost entirely from long dormant US Department of Defense Intelligence files. By examining the invasion scene beach-by-beach, through the eyes of a trained, experienced photo interpreter to uncover details a layman would certainly miss. This overview shows the scope and sweep of battle and helps explain why some objectives were reached, why some units forged ahead where others were stalled. See the beaches as never before; their width at low tide; the support vessels off shore and equipment moving inland; formidable beach obstacles, and pre-invasion aerial reconnaissance. A different perspective on one of the truly momentous military actions of the last hundred years. Illustrated with more than 2000 b/w images; 272 pages.
