The Guns at Last Light
The Guns at Last Light: The War in Western Europe, 1944-1945 (The Liberation Trilogy)
It is the twentieth century’s unrivaled epic: at an amazing value, the United States and its partners freed Europe and vanquished Hitler. In the initial two volumes of his top of the line Liberation Trilogy, Rick Atkinson related how they battled through North Africa and Italy to the limit of triumph. Presently he recounts the most sensational story of all―the titanic fight for Western Europe.
D-Day denoted the initiation of the European war’s last battle, and Atkinson’s bolting record of that strong bet sets the pace for the excellent story that takes after. The fierce battle in Normandy, the freedom of Paris, the fiasco that was Operation Market Garden, the horrendous Battle of the Bulge, lastly the push to the heart of the Third Reich―all these memorable occasions and more wake up with an abundance of new material and an entrancing cast of characters. With The Guns finally Light, the blending last volume of this stupendous set of three, Atkinson has created the authoritative annal of the war that unshackled a mainland and safeguarded opportunity in the West.
