Beschreibung

The British Beach Groups were a combined force of men stationed on the Normandy Beaches from the initial landing until the last unit was disbanded a few weeks after D-Day. They performed many vital roles during the assault, including: arranging and controlling the movement of all personnel and vehicles from landing craft to inland assembly areas, moving stores from ship's holds to dumps in the beach maintenance areas, developing and organising the beaches and beach maintenance areas for defence, movement and administration, including the evacuation of casualties and the recovery vehicles, providing a beach signal organisation, organising the removal and repatriation of casualties, prisoners of war and salvaged equpment, creating dumps to hold the petrol, ammunition, rations etc. that were being landed, and establishing assembly areas for arriving personnel and their vehicles. This book explores how this often-forgotten unit were the first to arrive and the last to leave one of history's greatest military operations and how their behind-the-scenes action saved lives and were essential for the success of the landings.
