English Description :
German defenses along the Normandy beaches were part of the larger Atlantic
Wall fortifications designed to defend Fortress Europe.
When Field Marshal Erwin Rommel took command of the invasion front in
late 1943, he began a program to enhance fortifications along the Normandy
coast as he believed that any Allied assault had to be stopped on the
invasion beaches themselves.
This richly iconographied "D-Day Fortifications in Normandy" analyses
these fortifications and describes how the Allied forces overcame them
on the morning of June 6, 1944. Available at : Amazon.com,
