'A glorious retelling of a brave invasion. . . . A riveting tale.' Baltimore Sun

'Offers some perceptions never presented on the Normandy invasion.' Military Review

'If you want to know what it was like, from Private to General, from rifle to tank, from beginning to end, this is the book for you.' CharlesM. Shulz

Originally published in 1989, Beyond the Beachhead became the standard for nearly all future histories of the WWII citizen soldier. It illustrated the brutal realities of life on the front line through following the movements of one division circumflex the 29th during 45 days of combat from Omaha Beach to the liberation of St. Lo. Available for the first time in trade paperback, this now classic study of one division's experience set against the backdrop of the U.S. Army's tactical strategy is a must read for anyone interested in the real World War II.

Joseph Balkoski is a historian specializing in the history of D Day and the Normandy Campaign during WWII. Beyond the Beachhead was his first book. He currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland, with his wife and daughter.

'The boys in Company A, 116th Infantry, were not in good spirits. They had lost two of their six landing craft on the run in. As the four remaining boats slid onto the beach and ground to a halt, their bow ramps dropped with a splash. The company was right where it was supposed to be, just east of the Vierville draw on the beach known as Dog Green. But the Germans were waiting for them.' from Beyond the Beachhead
