A fictional account of D-Day and the Allied invasion of Europe chronicles the events of the World War II campaign and the personalities who took part, from the ordinary soldiers on the land and in the air, to such leaders as Dwight Eisenhower, George Patton, and Omar Bradley, as their efforts changed the course of the war. (Historical Fiction)
Jeff Shaara's bestselling WWII series continues with STEEL WAVE, one of the most dramatic, nuanced, and visceral fictional accounts of D-Day ever written. Shaara takes his readers into the lives and minds of not only British and American troops, but also the German soldiers awaiting the "steel wave" invasion. Field Marshall Rommel "The Desert Fox" is given particularly complex scrutiny as a man who brilliantly and ruthlessly fought for Germany, even as he may have been involved in a plot to assassinate ******. Military historicals do not get much better than this.
