Product Description
On June 6, 1944, US and British forces came ashore on the beaches of Normandy, opening the western front. After fierce fighting and thousands of casualties, the Allies broke out of the he beachhead, and began the sweep across France.

In an attempt to end the war before Christmas, Allied leaders launched Operation Market-Garden, an ambitious plan designed to capture bridges in Holland. While some success was achieved, the plan ultimately failed. In a final attempt to stop the Allied advance, the Germans launched a massive offensive in December 1944, beginning the Battle of the Bulge.

After defeating the German thrust, the Allies pressed into Germany forcing its surrender on May 7, 1945.
