D Day Minute By Minute from the Author: Jonathan Mayo. This is the story of D-Day as seen through the eyes of the people who were there - from soldiers, French villagers and journalists, to schoolchildren and nurses, who found themselves placed in often extraordinary situations on that historic day in June 1944. Take French Resistance member Andre Heintz and his sister, who have to spread out bloody sheets in the shape of a giant red cross to protect a hospital from bombers; Rosemary Geddes at an RAF listening post, hearing transmissions between German gunners falling silent one by one; Red Cross volunteer Naina Cox, helping injured German POWs in Portsmouth on the afternoon of the invasion; a soldier of the Royal Corps of Signals, discovering his landing craft is carrying a box of white wooden crosses; or Commando Peter Masters, walking all alone towards a German machine gun shouting, 'You are totally surrounded! Give yourselves up!' - copying something he'd seen in a war film. D-Day: Minute by Minute is pure chronological narrative, giving an account of events that is both intimate and epic. As heard on BBC Radio 2, this book accompanies the Friday Night is Music Night Special: "D-Day 70 Years On" with Jeremy Vine and Dermot O'Leary.

The Global Monsoon System from the Author: Chih-Pei Chang. This book presents a current review of the science of monsoon research and forecasting. The contents are based on the invited reviews presented at the World Meteorological Organization's Fourth International Workshop on Monsoons in late 2008, with subsequent manuscripts revised from 2009 to early 2010. The book builds on the concept that the monsoons in various parts of the globe can be viewed as components of an integrated global monsoon system, while emphasizing that significant region-specific characteristics are present in individual monsoon regions. The topics covered include all major monsoon regions and time scales (mesoscale, synoptic, intraseasonal, interannual, decadal, and climate change). It is intended to provide an updated comprehensive review of the current status of knowledge, modeling capability, and future directions in the research of monsoon systems around the world. Contents:Global MonsoonRegional MonsoonsSynoptic and Mesoscale WeatherIntraseasonal PredictionNumerical ModelingOcean and Air-Sea InteractionLand and Aerosol ProcessesClimate Change Readership: Graduate students, academics and researchers in meteorology/climatology, and weather forecasting services.

D Day 1944 2 from the Author: Steven J. Zaloga. On their western flank, the Allied landings on D-Day combined a parachute drop by the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions with an amphibious assault on "Utah†? Beach by the US 4th Infantry Division. The landings came ashore in the wrong place but met weaker German resistance as a result. The heaviest fighting took place inland where the badly scattered paratroopers gradually gathered in small groups and made for their objectives. This book traces the story of D-Day on Utah beach, revealing how the infantry pushed inland and linked up with the Airborne troops in a beachhead five miles deep. Now the battle to break out and seize the key port of Cherbourg could begin.

Operation Overlord Design And Reality The Allied Invasion Of Europe from the Author: Dr. Albert Norman. A fascinating in-depth study of the planning for the D-Day landings which set the first Allied troops on the road to Berlin. Dr Norman served with the US 12th Army Group staff during the Second World War under General Omar Bradley, which put him in an expert position to tell the story of the exhaustive preparations that went into the Normandy invasion on 6th June 1944. ‘“Overlord” was unquestionably, as of this writing, the largest overseas military operation ever undertaken. In the pages which follow, Dr. Albert Norman presents, insofar as it can be compressed within one easily readable volume, a careful history of the planning which made its achievement possible and of the operation itself. Dr. Norman’s topic is absorbing, both for its historical interest and for the lessons it holds for those who, perhaps unfortunately, must be concerned with the possibility of “Overlords” yet to come. It holds yet another and even more important interest. The staff groups which contributed to the success of “Overlord” and the ultimate defeat of Germany were the exemplification of an idea of allied unity, developed by General Eisenhower and perfected to such an extent that it has become the symbol of successful international cooperation.’—General Walter Bedell Smith
