Divided into a series of itineraries, each with relevant photographs and map, and a fold-out map of the entire region, the guide covers the five landing beaches, airborne drop zones and surviving fortifications, as well as all cemeteries, memorials, museums, accommodation and other points of interest. It also descrbes the main personalities involved and the actions where major decorations were won.
