MAJOR & MRS HOLT'S DEFINITIVE BATTLEFIELD GUIDE TO D-DAY, NORMANDY LANDING BEACHES, GPS EDITION

Availability: In stock

£13.99

Quick Overview

Because of the upcoming anniversaries of WW2, particularly Normandy D-Day and the battle of Arnhem (Operation Market Garden), we are making a SPECIAL OFFER of a £3.00 reduction on each of our books for those battles. That reduction is reflected in the current offer price above on the order page for each book and will last until the end of April 2020.


This guide book has been created on the foundation of more than 30 years of conducting tours around, and writing about, the Nomandy Beaches. Our first Normandy Beaches guide book was published in 1983 and since then enlarged and updated new editions have led to the current EIGHTH EDITION. Beware low priced offers of earlier editions!


This edition is the Eighth and no other guide book comes close to providing the information that visitors need in order to have a successful tour.


It contains 10 BATTLE MAPS.  (see images on left) AND 6 ITINERARY MAPS AND 5 DIAGRAMS


To make navigation easy more than 450 places have GPS references as well as descriptions and photographs including UTAH, OMAHA, GOLD, JUNO & SWORD and the airborne drop and landing zones.


Veterans memories, told on the beaches to the authors, are included. After all they are the ones who really know what it was like.


'I have just finished reading your truly excellent Normandy D-Day Landing Beaches and am very impressed by the research and care taken over its presentation'
