Bill Jarnagin's photojournal, WW2 Europe : a photo combat diary

To get a really good idea of what it looked like during this time, a journal such as this one is something very special indeed. As it centers on the war itself, special attention is given to the topic like very few made years later. Again it is out of print, but Amazon.com will do it's due diligence to find the diary for you within a few weeks.

The Grand Alliance (The Second World War, Vol 3)
by Winston S. Churchill, John Keegan. Paperback (May 9 1986)

 

This re-issue grandly takes us to a time in history when the United States Congress could no longer hesitate but to work with Great Britain to end the tyranny of Hitler once and for all. It details the sheer tonnage and material supply necessary for such a great endeavor, and explains from Winston Churchill's point of view, just when it was that victory was imminent. From America's first involvement to the Prime Minister's initial doubts, this book begins the long road the Allies initiated and eventually utilized to develop the island bases such as Rosneath and others.

When Civilians Manned the Ships : Life in the Amphibious Fleet During Wwii
by James A. Kehl

 

A very special book dedicated to something quite unusual for the mainstream. This book delves into the life of the everyday civilian in World War Two that manned the thousands of Amphibious crafts needed to both rescue and land our soldiers. It is unique in it's content, as normally we read about the more glorified vessels that were needed to win the wars, and really nothing digging deeply into who supported them...."lest we forget that if it wasn't for these brave men who manned the workhorses, we would never have won the war!"

D-Day 1944 (Modern War Studies)
by Theodore A. Wilson (Editor), John S. D. Eisenhower

 

From the Back Cover "D-Day 1944 contains essays by the world's leading scholars on the invasion of France, covering all aspects of the greatest amphibious assault in history, combining new information and scholarship in a highly readable and instructive volume. Recommended without hesitation or qualification."--Stephen A. Ambrose, author of Eisenhower and The Great and Noble Undertaking 

Need I say more? This one completes a library of many great books on the war. Using extremely detailed information in the first level of the military food chain, Wilson gives the reader an unequaled look into what made the entire invasion a reality.
