Beginning with the Polish, French, Dutch, Belgian, Danish, Norwegian and British forces that attempted to stem the Blitzkrieg, and ending with the composite Allied forces that Eisenhower halted on the Elbe river, a wide range of ground forces fought against the Third Reich in the European and Mediterranean theatres. Broken down by key battles or campaigns within each theatre of war, Order of Battle: Western Allied Forces of World War II shows the strengths and organizational structures of the Western Allies’ ground forces campaign by campaign, building into a detailed compendium of information.

With extensive organizational diagrams and full-colour campaign maps showing the disposition of units, Order of Battle: Western Allied Forces of World War II is an easy-to-use guide to the many nationalities that served as part of the Allied army, their strengths during key campaigns and battles, and details of where they served throughout the war. The book will be an essential reference guide for any serious enthusiast of World War II.
