Strategic imperatives such as destroying German industry or landing an army in France were easy enough for leaders to identify but how could such things be achieved? This book looks at the problems set Allied forces from 1943-1945 and explains how a host of dedicated commanders, original thinkers and innovative engineers came up with solutions ranging from strategic bombing to flailing tanks designed to overcome defences on the Normandy beaches.
