<b>Experience the battlefields of D-Day in this beautiful book combining historical images, full-color aerial photography, and informative text.</b><br /> 聽<br /> The D-Day invasion of Nazi-occupied Normandy was the most dramatic turning point of World War II. With a combination of historic and contemporary photography, along with maps and other illustrations, <i>The Normandy Battlefields</i> takes readers 鈥渙n-site鈥?to the sacred battlegrounds.<br /> 聽<br /> The armada that attacked from Britain left behind many signs of their passage. <i>The Normandy Battlefields</i> details what can be seen on the ground today using a mixture of media to provide a complete overview of the campaign. Maps old and new highlight what has survived and what hasn鈥檛; then-and-now photography allows fascinating comparisons with the images taken at the time, and computer artwork provides graphic details of things that can鈥檛 be seen today.<br /> 聽<br /> The book describes the area from Cherbourg to Le Havre by way of the key D-Day locations, providing a handbook for the visitor and an overview for the armchair traveler. It covers the forces from both sides and the memorials to those young men who fought so many years ago.

What is a country? Acclaimed travel writer and Oxford geography don Nick Middleton brings to life the origins and histories of 50 states that, lacking international recognition and United Nations membership, exist on the margins of legitimacy in the global order. From long-contested lands like Crimea and Tibet to lesser-known territories such as Africa's last colony and a European republic that enjoyed independence for a single day, Middleton presents fascinating stories of shifting borders, visionary leaders, and "forgotten" peoples. Beautifully illustrated with 50 regional maps, each country is literally die-cut out of the page, offering a distinctive tactile experience while exploring these remarkable places.

<b>Discover wonder.<br /><br /> 鈥淎 wanderlust-whetting cabinet of curiosities on paper.鈥濃€?lt;i> New York Times</i></b><br /><br /> Inspiring equal parts wonder and wanderlust, <i>Atlas Obscura</i> is a phenomenon of a travel book that shot to the top of bestseller lists when it was first published and changed the way we think about the world, expanding our sense of how strange and marvelous it really is.<br /><br /> This second edition takes readers to even more curious and unusual destinations, with more than 100 new places, dozens and dozens of new photographs, and two very special features: twelve city guides, covering Berlin, Budapest, Buenos Aires, Cairo, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Moscow, New York City, Paris, Shanghai, and Tokyo. Plus a foldout map with a dream itinerary for the ultimate around-the-world road trip. More a cabinet of curiosities than traditional guidebook,<i> Atlas Obscura </i>revels in the unexpected, the overlooked, the bizarre, and the mysterious. Here are natural wonders, like the dazzling glowworm caves in New Zealand, or a baobob tree in South Africa so large it has a pub inside where 15 people can sit and drink comfortably. Architectural marvels, including the M. C. Escher鈥搇ike stepwells in India. Mind-boggling events, like the Baby-Jumping Festival in Spain鈥攁nd no, it鈥檚 not the babies doing the jumping, but masked men dressed as devils who vault over rows of squirming infants.<br /><br /> Every page gets to the very core of why humans want to travel in the first place: to be delighted and disoriented, uprooted from the familiar and amazed by the new. With its compelling descriptions, hundreds of photographs, surprising charts, maps for every region of the world, and new city guides, it is a book you can open anywhere and be transported. But proceed with caution: It鈥檚 almost impossible not to turn to the next entry, and the next, and the next.<br /><br /> 聽

<b>A detailed account of Germany鈥檚 groundbreaking </b><b>Operation Weser眉bung, the first three dimensional鈥攍and, sea, air鈥攕trategic invasion in history.</b><br /> 聽<br /> The German invasion of Denmark and Norway in April 1940 brought a sudden and shocking end to the 鈥淧honey War鈥?in the West. In a single day, multiple seaborne and airborne landings established German forces ashore in Norway, overwhelming the unprepared Norwegian forces and catching the Allied Powers completely by surprise. Their belated response was ill-thought-out and badly organized, and by June 9 all resistance had formally ended.<br /> 聽<br /> The strategic importance of Scandinavian iron ore, shipped through the port of Narvik to Germany, was the main cause of the campaign. The authors show how Allied attempts to interdict these supplies provoked German plans to secure them, and also how political developments in the inter-war years resulted in both Denmark and Norway being unable to deter threats to their neutrality despite having done so successfully in the First World War. The German attack was their first 鈥渏oint鈥?air, sea, and land operation, making large-scale use of air-landing and parachute forces, and the Luftwaffe鈥檚 control of the air throughout the campaign would prove decisive. Although costly, particularly for the Kriegsmarine, it was a triumph of good planning, improvisation and aggressive, determined action by the troops on the ground.<br /> 聽<br /> Making full use of Norwegian, Danish, and German sources, this book is a full and fascinating account of this highly significant campaign and its aftermath both for the course of the Second World War and the post-war history of the two countries conquered with such unprecedented speed.
