From the cover: “Much has been written about D-Day, the Allied landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944. But far less is known about the planning and strategic arguments that occurred on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as those that governed German military thinking on the likelihood, and projected defence, of an Allied invasion of Festung Europa. Part of the fascination of the whole story is the hypothetical questions which can be asked but which, because history can never be replayed, can never be fully answered; Would not Vienna have been a better strategic target than Paris? And would not the Mediterranean have provided an easier approach than the heavily fortified and defended English Channel coast?
