Blitzkrieg in the West

This superbly illustrated book captures the dramatic action of May and June 1940. The speed and ferocity of the German onslaught took the Allies by surprise as Hitler's land and air forces annihilated the inferior opposition. After 9 months stalemate the collapse was cataclysmic and Holland and Belgium quickly fell leaving the British and French forces outflanked and outfought. Panic set in and huge numbers of civilian refugees clogged the roads making the Allies' withdrawal even more precarious. The miracle of Dunkirk saved vast numbers of British and French forces but could not prevent the surrender of France, leaving Britain to fight on virtually alone.

The splendid photographs in this Images of War series book tell the story of this extraordinary period of history. They include previously unseen images of Rommel's Ghost Division.

Ian Baxter is a prolific author and collector of wartime images. He has published an impressive number of Images of War books. He lives in Essex.
