OUT OF PRINT. The long-awaited Allied landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944 finally opened the second front in Western Europe, and condemned Hitler's forces to defeat. From the moment the Allies broke out of their beachhead in August 1944, they began their inexorable advance towards Berlin and final victory, crushing the remaining German defenders between themselves and the Soviet Army advancing from the East.

The Fall of the Reich is a military history of World War II in western Europe from the invasion of France in June 1944 to the fall of Berlin in May 1945, when the Western Allies halted on the banks of the Elbe, and allowed the Russians to capture the city. The authoritative text is complemented by the outstanding selection of color and black-and-white action photographs from all the campaigns featured in the book.

A comprehensive account of the events in western Europe after D-Day, The Fall of the Reich explores in detail the state of the German and Allied armies in 1944, and the planning and preparation that went into the D-Day landings themselves. Campaigns covered in the book include the largest amphibious operation of the war, the Allied invasion of Normandy; the deadly fighting in the bocage; the American-led breakout from the beachheads; the liberation of Paris and the race for the German frontier; Operation Dragoon, the invasion of southern France; the `bridge too far' at Arnhem; the liberation of Holland and Belgium; the last throw of the dice by Hitler, the Ardennes offensive; the crossing of the Rhine in early 1945; and finally, the advance by the Allies towards Berlin, which was halted by Eisenhower on the Elbe.

The Fall of the Reich is a superbly illustrated history of the final years of the conflict in western Europe, including full-color artworks of all the main items of hardware that were used in the campaign and many of the participants' uniforms, as well as detailed color campaign maps to explain the movement of troops on each side.
