A Travellerís Guide to D-Day and the Battle for Normandy
Carl Shilleto and Mike Tolhurst

5 1/4" x 8" • 192 pages • b&w photos, maps
ISBN 9781566565554 • paperback • $14.95

A Traveller’s Guide to D-Day and the Battle for Normandy covers the period from June to August 1944 when the Allies stormed ashore, fought their way through the bocage country of Normandy, and eventually broke out through the Avranches gap.

A new kind of guidebook. This title gives comprehensive information about:

o Major battles and battlefields
o Memorials, sites, cemeteries, and statues
o How to get there; what to see
o Contemporary eyewitness accounts
o Then-and-now photographs and maps

The guide helps us understand what it was like to have endured the ordeal of combat. Through their own words, we learn the feelings of those young men and women of many nationalities who fought and died. What were their private thoughts and fears? Their personal memories? Contemporary eyewitness accounts are woven into the fabric of this book, which has an immediacy and vividness that marks a new departure in guidebooks.


Media Reviews
"...indispensable...The text is a fine, economical blend of military accuracy and vivid anecdote; the tourism-related material is complete without being overwhelming; the maps are easy to read...For anyone contemplating such a trip or looking for a readable general account of the battle-this is an excellent, well-executed resource."-ForeWord Magazine
