The photographs collected in Armoured Warfare in the Battle for Normandy show in graphic detail the role armor played in the Allied struggle to liberate occupied France—and the skill and tenacity of the German panzer units that confronted them.
Anthony Tucker-Jones traces the armored campaign from D-Day to the Allied breakthrough and the destruction of the German 5th Panzer Army at Falaise. The images vividly portray the fighting itself, and the widespread destruction and horrific casualties that went with it. But they also record the routines of tank warfare, as well as the machines—German Mk IVs, Panthers, and Tigers and the Allied Shermans and Churchills—that faced off against each other in the French countryside and towns.
