The Steel Wave      by Jeff Shaara

General Dwight Eisenhower commands a diverse army that must destroy Hitler's European fortress. On the coast of France, German commander Erwin Rommel prepares for the coming invasion, as the Führer thwarts the strategies Rommel knows will succeed. Meanwhile, Sergeant Jesse Adams, a veteran of the 82nd Airborne, parachutes with his men behind German lines. And as the invasion force surges toward the beaches of Normandy, Private Tom Thorne of the 29th Infantry Division faces the horrifying prospect of fighting his way ashore on Omaha Beach, a stretch of coast more heavily defended than the Allied commanders anticipate.

From G.I. to general, The Steel Wave carries us through the war's most crucial juncture, the invasion that altered the flow of the war and, ultimately, changed history.
