|I just picked up a used copy of Grigg's "1943: The Victory That Never Was". In it, he presents an argument that states that the US and the UK could have successfully landed in France during 1943, thereby saving lives and time. I know Dunn has a similar book, titled "Second Front, Now!". |
My question is whether this line of thinking has ever developed into a serious debate in the literature. Are there other books presenting this argument? Are there books refuting it?
My gut reaction is to say that a second front could not have successfully been opened in France during 1943, but Grigg's book has got me thinking...
