THE D-DAY ATLAS: Anatomy of the Normandy Campaign

Charles Messenger, Author . Thames & Hudson $34.95 (176p) ISBN 978-0-500-25123-2

The 178 illustrations of this annotated atlas include 71 full-color maps, which stand out among its rather indifferent images. A veteran of Britain's Royal Tank Regiment and Territorial Army, historian and defense analyst Messenger (The Second World War in the West ) is the author of more than 30 books and has written and directed three BBC Worldwide television series. His knowledge of his subject comes through in the clear, info-packed, subtopic-laden essays that make up the five chapters here, systematically taking readers through D-Day and its aftermath.
