First published in 1994, this reprint by Pen & Sword in 2015 brings Richard Townshend Bickers' perspective to the Normandy Campaign in the air.

This book looks at the contribution of air power from the preparation of the battlefield and deception operations to an account of air operations throughout the campaign. He includes some accounts from those who were there, and on both sides of the battlefield. He emphasises that a great many “routine“ sorties contributed to the build-up, citing Coastal Command operations and the evolution of close air support from the desert campaigns as ways in which, gradually, tactics were evolved that bore fruit in the end.

Overall, a very good read for those who want a short (less than 200 pages) and vivid account of the contribution of air power to the success of the D-Day landings.
