Fields of War: Battle of Normandy provides the history and locations for the fight for Normandy against the massed armies of Nazi Germany. Starting on the beaches and drop zones of D-Day and continuing to the annihilation of the German Seventh Army in the Falaise Pocket, the Battle of Normandy describes the individuals whose sacrifices determined the outcome and brings battlefield visitors to the actual locations of their efforts.
Each battlefield location is identified with detailed driving directions and GPS co-ordinates. The understanding of large and small engagements is enhanced by the 94 battlefield maps on which military units and outstanding terrain features are superimposed upon the modern road network. Museums, cemeteries, and other sites are described and their physical and email addresses, hours of operation, and websites are presented.
