Summary

The Allies make slow progress through Europe during the summer of 1944, finding themselves bogged down in the Normandy countryside. In the Pacific, American forces on the island of Saipan fight their costliest battle to date, but the mood is buoyed by the eventual Nazi retreat and the liberation of Paris on August 25, ending four years of occupation.
