      A full moon occurred on 6 June. There is a wonderful vignette of an old, one-legged, one-eyed Prussian general called Erich Marcks refusing whipped cream at dinner: "I do not wish to see this again as long as our country is starving. I'm not. General Eisenhower is a very worried man. Normandy was fraught with difficulties for the Allies. Beevor follows personalities from one location to another.

      And, of course, there are many pictures of horror, including a description of cleaning human remains from the inside of a tank with a mess tin and spoon. And while working Battle of Normandy book save another soldier, the two were pinned under the ramp of a boat bringing in more Americans. As well as the grotesque, there were moments of comedy, such as when an allied soldier asked a French farmer "Ou es Alamon? It is a story that one cannot easily forget--and one that the families of Bedford will never forget. The historian must always make a choice between the work of depiction and the work of analysis.

      This weakness became even more apparent as Allied bombers and Resistance units destroyed routes along which fuel could be supplied. According to the D-Day Museum : The armed forces use codenames to refer to the planning and execution of specific military operations. Stagg's meteorologists could not agree whether the weather for the invasion, originally planned for 5 June and various dates in May, would be suitable: "For heaven's sake, Stagg," Bull exploded. For men such as Marshal Kluge, the battles fought in Normandy were literally make or break for the German army.
