The Guns at Last Light: The War in Western Europe, 1944-1945


by: Rick Atkinson
It is the twentieth century’s unrivaled epic: at a staggering price, the United States and its allies liberated Europe and vanquished Hitler.

Double Cross: The True Story of the D-Day Spies


by: Ben Macintyre
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF A SPY AMONG FRIENDS   

   On June 6, 1944, 150,000 Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy and suffered an astonishingly low rate of casualties. A stunning military accomplishment, it was also a masterpiece of trickery.
