From the cover: “This three volume set includes previously unreleased official histories: Operation Neptune — The Landings in Normandy, June 1944, The Campaign in North West Europe, June 1944 to May 1945 and Invasion of the South of France — Operation Dragoon, August 1944. These “Battle Summaries” were written relatively soon after the events which they describe, and are based on official documentary material which did not become available to the public until 1968. In due course, the volumes became basic reference sources for the authors of the Cabinet Office series of Official Histories of the Second World War. Together, they offer a wealth of factual information, set in its correct strategic and tactical context, and written by experienced naval officers who were able to extract the essentials from the vast quantity of material available at the time.”
