The Americans at Normandy: The Summer of 1944 — The American War from the Normandy Beaches to Falaise
"An American Iliad"—Stephen Coonts
"Required reading on a bitter battle that won't be—and never should be—forgotten."
"Awesome! A definitive account of a turning point in American and world history."
"Far more gripping than Saving Private Ryan. Comprehensively detailed . . . Utterly fascinating. McManus' style fits the slam-bang fighting that characterized one of the most crucial periods of the war, and he makes every battle—-and every soldier—-count as if it were the last round in the clip."
—Walter J. Boyne, New York Times bestselling author of Operation Iraqi Freedom
"I thought I knew something about war and men at war until I read John C. McManus' deeply insightfiul book. I stand humbled by what I consider nothing less than a definitive work on a subject whose scope is simply so vast that no writer until now has put int in perspective and made it real."
