World War II PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

World War II free pdf Beginning with a look at D-Day itself, this book begins by analyzing the deadly fighting on the beaches as the Allies launched the first successful cross-Channel invasion in 900 years and concludes with the final victory amidst the ruins of Berlin. Now, almost 70 years afterwards, this book reveals the realities of the final year of the war through the words and recollections of the last surviving veterans. Using their own words and accounts, it describes the terror of soldiers facing down a German tank, assaulting a machine-gun post or surviving an artillery barrage on the long, arduous road to Victory-in-Europe. Drawing upon expert analysis and no-holds-barred recreations, it also shows the devastating effects of the weaponry used on a daily basis in an astonishing sequence of full-colour images while historic imagery bring to life the last great battles between the Allies and Nazi Germany from the torturous struggle for control of Falaise to the desperate fighting in the Bulge and the final push to the heart of the Reich. Like no other book before, "World War II Frontline Heroes" reveals how ordinary men and women fought and survived throughout the extraordinary final months of World War II.
