Each section is accompanied by maps and plenty of photos which not only include archive pictures (some very well known) alongside modern day comparisons and what you see at the same spot today. Among the many bunkers, museums and memorials the book includes a good selection of very nice aerial photos showing a number of sites today. These include places like the Pointe du Hoc and the Longues sur Mer battery among many others. It rounds everything off with a brief summary of what happened in the few days following D-Day itself, and how the beachhead was consolidated. With appendices giving more information that includes a handy map of the main museum sites to be found all along the beachhead, this is a very useful guide to keep in the car with you if you are planning to visit the area for the first time. Another useful book from Heimdal and Georges Bernage for anyone interested in the Normandy battlefields. (Military Modeling) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
