A military intelligence expert examines the most formative battle of World War II. The Battle of Normandy was the greatest offensive campaign the world had ever seen. Millions of soldiers battling for control of Europe were thrust onto the front lines of a massive war unlike any experienced in history. But the greatest of clashes would prove to be the crucible in which the outcome of World War II would be decided. Author John Prados tells the story of how and why the tactics and battle plans of Normandy proved so formative, and reconstructs the climactic Allied Normandy breakout from both sides of the battle lines.

The main character of this remarkable book is combat?what it was like to exist as an infantry soldier under the horrific life and death situations encountered on the World War II battlefield. Robert Rogge, a 22-year-old American volunteer with the Canadian Army, waded ashore in Normandy on D-Day, 1944. He survived eleven months of intense fighting until May 1945, when the Allies achieved their hard-fought victory in Europe. Out of his wartime experiences, Rogge graphically portrays, in a series of stunning, cinematic episodes, the animal fury, terror, raw emotions, and almost subhuman existence of frontline soldiers. Besides the blood and guts of battle, Rogge also gives us the quiet times, the joy of liberation, and the uplifting renewal of the human spirit that tenderness can provide. Fearsome Battle?with a style as immediate as yesterday?lays bare the heart of war in all its terrible reality.
