The Devil's Garden

Rating
The severe casualties suffered by American forces on Omaha Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944, have led to the nickname "Bloody Omaha." Why were the casualties so high on Omaha Beach compared to the other four Allied beaches? In his latest book, acclaimed military historian Steven Zaloga attempts to answer that question by focusing on the German side of this important World War II battle. The nature of German defences at Omaha explains much of why casualties were so heavy there -- and those defences can be traced back largely to the efforts of Erwin Rommel, the famed "Desert Fox." In addition to telling the story of Rommel's role in shaping the German defences confronted by the Allies on D-Day, Zaloga also explores neglected aspects of the battle, such as the German patrols tasked with shooting down the carrier pigeons sent from the French Resistance to British intelligence. This book also serves as a visual record of German defences on Omaha Beach, covering the fortifications and weapons placed in this sector. Zaloga's well-supported conclusions are sure to spark debate, and his book is essential reading as D-Day's seventieth anniversary approaches.
