Arromanches Beach, 1945

Arromanches Beach, 1945
Arromanches Beach, the site of the British Mulberry harbour, seen at some time during 1945. Few signs of the massive effort that took place here in the previous year are still visible.
The D-Day Companion, ed. Jane Penrose. A selection of thirteen separate essays on different aspects of the D-Day lands, from the initial planning to post-war memorials; this is an excellent piece of work that sets the D-Day landings firmly in context. An excellent starting point for anyone who wants to learn more about Operation Overlord, but its wide range of topics means it is likely to be of value to anyone with an interest in the subject.
