These documents have remained unpublished, until now. This correspondence which charts the war in Europe also reveals the true feelings of these men, their most candid opinions on the progress of the campaign, the organization of SHAEF headquarters, the planning for the invasion of the continent, and the day-to-day problems which arose during the arduous engagements across France and into Germany. They also cover the surrender negotiations with the Nazis and the Soviets, culminating in the huge problem of rebuilding Europe, and give a unique insight into their attitudes towards the statesmen, politicians, generals, and the press of the day. This is the story of the battle for Europe in the words of those who fought it, day by day, as it happened.
