With essays from leading names in military history, this new book re-examines the crucial issues and debates of the D-Day campaign.

It tackles a range of core topics, placing them in their current historiographical context, to present new and sometimes revisionist interpretations of key issues, such as the image of the Allied armies compared with the Germans, the role of air power, and the lessons learned by the military from their operations.

As the Second World War is increasingly becoming a field of revisionism, this book sits squarely within growing debates, shedding new light on topics and bringing current thinking from our leading military and strategic historians to a wider audience.

This book will be of great interest to students of the Second World War, and of military and strategic studies in general.
