Years to Victory
McKay, 1973 - 507 Seiten
"Beginning with 'the loneliest man in the world,' General Dwight D. Eisenhower, making his decision to proceed with Operation Overlord, Years to Victory recounts the last years of World War II from the Allied landings in Normandy on June 6, 1944, to the utter defeat and unconditional surrender of Germany and Japan. As the dignitaries assembled on the deck of the United States battleship Missouri in Tokyo Bay on the morning of September 2, 1945, the Axis had been totally destroyed."--Book Jacket.
