A Traveller's Guide to D-Day and the Battle for Normandy covers the period from June to August 1944 when the Allies stormed ashore, fought their way through the bocage country of Normandy, and eventually broke out through the Avranches gap.
D-Day and the Battle for Normandy Traveller's Guide from the Massachusetts-based publishers Interlink Books, grouping the region into seven sightseeing routes. Each route is presented as a detailed description of the fighting in 1944, with particular stress placed on the contemporary eyewitness accounts.

The seven routes cover: the Pegasus Bridge, the ‘All-Americans’ and the ‘Screaming Eagles’ landings, Utah Brach to Cherbourg, Omaha Beach to Caen, Sword Beach to Caen, Gold Beach to Bluecoat, plus June Beach to Falaise. The guide includes many “Eyewitness” panels with soldiers’ comments and is illustrated with contemporary photos. The introductory section provides contact details for local D-Day related museums and tourist offices.
