The Normandy campaign in the summer of 1944 was perhaps the most important battle of the twentieth century. It decided the fate of Nazi Germany. This historiographical narrative critically assesses the important literature on the campaign and offers the most comprehensive bibliography on the subject to date. This research guide is easily accessible, with cross-references between the text and the bibliography and a full index. It has been developed for use in public, college, university, and institutional libraries and to serve military historians and history "buffs" interested in D-Day. The narrative provides a brief historical background, describes ten different types of sources for conducting research on the Normandy campaign and then looks at sources concerned with the Second Front, Overlord, air and naval preparations, Operation Fortitude, D-Day, and the Battle for Normandy, before pointing to trends and future research needs. The second part of the book lists 539 works on the Normandy campaign, including references, bibliographies, guides, dissertations, books, documents, and magazine articles. The emphasis is on English-language works, but the most significant French and German materials are included also.

Editorial Reviews

?Baxter's bibliography is more a handbook to the Normandy invasion than a bibliography. Compiled as a series of essays constituting an introduction to the various facets of the campaign, this treatment will be meaningful to both the uninitiated and the experienced scholar. Baxter (history, East Tennessee State University) has a fundamental understanding of both the issues and the sources surrounding D-Day and is up to date in regards to the latest historical revisions. His concise and clear treatment will give beginning researchers an accurate sense of the literature of Normandy and he offers sage counsel in its use and applicability.?-Choice
