Normandy to Victory 

Edited by John T. Greenwood

Normany to Victory is comprised from the war diary of General Courtney Hicks Hodges, beginning on 2 June 1944 as Hodges and the US First Army prepare for the Allied invasion of France. The diary - with messages recorded daily by Hoges' aides and reviewed and approved the General himself - details Hodges' rise in August 1944 to Commanding General; his views on the enemy and strategy; and it follows him and the First Army through combat in Eurpoe until the German surrender in May 1945.
