About this item
"The battle of Falaise,"wrote General Eisenhower in 1944, "will be the greatest killing-ground of the war."He was not far off the mark, for at Falaise the invasion ended and a new advance began that carried the Allied armies to Berlin.
Elleston Trevor depicts the men of a tank squadron as they cross the silent, darkened channel, storm the "invincible" coast, and sweep into Falaise. His book is a classic story of men at war.
