Overlord; D-day and the Battle for Normandy 1944 Summary


Overlord; D-day and the Battle for Normandy 1944 by Sir Max Hastings

The famous D-Day Landings of 6 June 1944 marked the beginning of Operation Overlord, the battle for the liberation of Europe. Max Hastings has overturned many traditional legends to write this memorable study. Drawing together the eyewitness accounts of survivors on both sides, plus a wealth of previously untapped sources and documents, Overlord provides a brilliant, controversial perspective on the devastating battle for Normandy.

'A masterly book, rich in insight, shrewd and weighty in judgement . . . Max Hastings stands in the first rank of writers on modern war' Financial Times

'A book which combines serious historical and critical comment with brilliant reportage. He brings both the arguments between higher commanders and the fighting on the battlefield itself to life more vividly than previous books' Times Literary Supplement

'A beautifully written masterpiece which makes The Longest Day seem inadequate' Len Deighton

Overlord; D-day and the Battle for Normandy 1944 Reviews


" Max Hastings ' s reportage of the battle is not unworthy to stand with that of the best journalists and writers who witnessed it. . . . A tribute to his skills as a historian. " - John Keegan, The New York Times Book Review
" Hastings combines a quick, clear prose with provocative and often brilliant analysis. His conclusions are sharp yet sound, his research through, and his history incisive. Of the many books that have been written on Normandy, it is quite simply the best. " - Dallas Morning News
" A brilliant and concise account. "
- The Washington Post Book World
" A fine account of the strategy and tactics of the campaign. The author has been shot at himself. . . . This has done marvels for quickening his understanding of what such landings are like, and adds an extra cutting edge to his book. He goes over a well-worn path, full of pitfalls, and falls into none of them. "
