The late Canadian Brig. Gen. Denis Whitaker, of Canada's Royal Military College, and his wife, Shelagh, of Ontario, coauthored Victory at Falaise , as well as this and three other books, with professor and Canadian Military History editor Kopp. Drawing on interviews and myriad other sources, they piece together the in-the-moment thinking of Allied soldiers and commanders as they struggled against two German armies in France in the aftermath of D-Day. Beyond the conventional hard slogging and pounding, the authors show a flexible military instrument using every means at its disposal. (On sale May 25)
