Fresh research has produced a detailed text and color photographs that cover every aspect of the organization, training and active operations of the special units of D-Day.

The invasion of Normandy is undoubtedly one of the most written about military events of the 20th Century.

Noted military historian, Jonathan Gawne examines the landings at Utah and Omaha with an eye to what other writers have ignored.
