• Includes the personal photographic archives of two Arado pilots, Sommer and Götz

More than seventy years after the end of World War II, many grey areas still surround this period. By launching Juvincourt, August 2, 1944, the first aerial reconnaissance mission for the Arado 234 jet, the eye of the V-2, Hitler played his last card. These striking aerial photographs, taken that day, showed the entire allied positions and lead to the decision to counterattack at Mortain. Curiously, these pictures disappeared from U.S. official archives for half a century. After a long process of research and investigation, Philippe Bauduin, former director of Anvar Lower Normandy, and Eric Charon, journalist, demonstrate, with supporting evidence, that the Battle of Normandy proved an extraordinary challenge for the Allies and the Germans. This new edition of a book also includes the personal photographic archives of two Arado pilots, Sommer and Götz.
