Robin Neillands' new history of the Battle of Normandy (Cassell, 2002) was hailed by the SUNDAY TIMES as one of the best military history books of the year. This continues the story from the breakout from Normandy to the arrival of the Allied armies on the Rhine at the beginning of 1945. The story is dominated by two great battles: the Allied airborne offensive into Holland that ended in bitter failure at Arnhem, and Hitler's last great offensive in the Ardennes that December, the 'Battle of the Bulge'. This book ends where Robin's previous book THE CONQUEST OF THE REICH begins, thus forming a trilogy that takes us from the Normandy landings to the fall of Berlin.
