D-Day Beach Force
The Men Who Turned Chaos into Order
The fact that approximately 75,000 men were involved in the 'Beach Groups' on D-Day is testament to the size of their task, carrying out the largest invasion in history. Including contemporary photographs and organizational diagrams, this book describes the complex operation of bringing personnel and vehicles from landing craft to inland assembly areas, creating supply dumps and defensive positions and administering the evacuation of casualties and POWs from 6 June 1944 until several weeks later. Slightly off-mint.
