Three battles that changed the course of WWII and echo through world history to the present day. Three renowned experts each take up one of these crucial engagements.
Iwo Jima 1945
Operation Detachment, the invasion of Iwo Jima, on February 19, 1945, was the first campaign on Japanese soil, and it resulted in some of the fiercest fighting of the Pacific campaign.
El Alamein 1942
El Alamein saw two of the greatest generals of the war pitted against each other: Rommel and Montgomery.
When we think of Arnhem, we think of a bridge too far and a sky full of parachutes dropping the Allies into the Netherlands. It was one of the most complex and strategically important operations of the war.
