Summary
A telling of the war in Europe, from D-Day, June 6, 1944, to the end, eleven months later, on May 7, 1945. Ambrose draws on thousands of interviews and oral histories from government and private archives, from the high command Eisenhower, Bradley, Patton--on down through officers and enlisted men--to re-create the last year of the Second World War when the Allied soldiers pushed the Germans out of France, chased them across Germany, and destroyed the Nazi regime
