The guns at last light : the war in Western Europe, 1944-1945

Atkinson, Rick (Author).

Summary: It is the twentieth century's unrivaled epic: at a staggering price, the United States and its Allies vanquished Hitler and liberated Europe. In the first two volumes of his bestselling Liberation Trilogy, Rick Atkinson recounted how the American-led coalition fought through North Africa and Italy to the threshold of victory. Now he tells the most dramatic story of all - the titanic battle in Western Europe.
