The post-Normandy battles, as the Allies struggled for seven months to advance from the Seine to the Rhine, were never less than complex and controversial. Even after sixty years, the questions remain. In this account of the 1944 post-Normandy campaign, historian Robin Neillands examines the often difficult relationships between the Allied generals and the nature of Eisenhower's exercise of his role as supreme commander. With superb battle narratives throughout and clear analysis of success and failure at every point, the author casts a new and informed light on the long, drawn-out, and costly struggle for the Rhine.

ROBIN NEILLANDS, a former Royal Marines commando, has been described as "one of Britain's most readable military historians" (Birmingham Post). Author of more than forty books, he is noted for his careful research and clear, lively accounts of complex battles and matters of command. His previous book, The Battle of Normandy 1944, was hailed by the Sunday Times as one of the best military histories of its year.From AudioFile:
For decades, historians have argued about whether the Allies should have been able to end the war in Europe more quickly after the D-Day landings. In this audio, Robin Neillands discusses the post-Normandy battles of late 1944, including Arnhem and the Battle of the Bulge. British narrator James Adams captures the outrage of the author, who rails against the myths surrounding these campaigns. Adamss reading is brisk and energetic, though he is sometimes betrayed by the editing of this production. Occasionally, the tone is inconsistent and the sound uneven, but these are minor distractions in an otherwise compelling history.
