D-Day Landings In Normandy GA Guide

£15.00

D-D Landings in Normandy, 1944 (2003)

The only British Guide to the geological controls on the D-Day landings in Normandy. The guide puts into context many of the reasons why the Normandy coast was selected for the invasion, reasons most people are, or were, unaware of. The four itineraries are based on examining the solid (mainly highly fossiliferous Jurassic strata) and superficial (such as Pleistocene loess) geology exposures associated with and adjacent to the main landing areas, Sword, Juno, Gold, Omaha and Utah Beaches, including considering them in terms of water supply, aggregate sources, airfield sites and cross-country movements. A glossary is incorporated.
