Description - Utah Beach by Joseph Balkoski
Balkoski is in top form in this groundbreaking analysis of the other half of America's D-Day.--Dennis Showalter, author of Patton and Rommel Although the assault on Utah Beach ultimately became one of the most successful military operations of World War II, its outcome was anything but certain. Not only was Utah the most isolated of the five D-Day beaches, but the airborne assault was of unprecedented size and complexity. Despite the perils, American troops confidently cascaded into that far corner of Normandy and contributed decisively to the Allied triumph on D-Day. With verve and authority, Balkoski describes how that victory was won.
