Summary
The Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944, marked a critical turning point in the European theater of World War II. While the D-day invasion has been throughly researched and examined, the crucial period following the invasion, from August to September, has been largely ignored. Offering a valuable account of the conflict from the perspective of the German forces, 'Ruckzug' draws on both Allied and German military records to show that a quick defeat of the Germans was hindered by excessive caution and lack of strategic boldness on the part of the Allies, as well as by the Germans' tactical skill and energy.
