A study of American campaigns in Europe during World War II. Looks at prewar planning and the origins of "Germany first" in war planning. Examines Marshall's and Eisenhower's concept that the U.S. should conduct a cross channel attack aimed at the heartland of Germany. Then undertakes a comprehensive discussion of how the European campaign was actually carried out.
