9781848845589: Code Name MULBERRY: The Planning Building and Operation of the Normandy Harbours

Allied leaders and military planners realized early in preparations for the invasion of NW Europe that the massive forces required to defeat Hitler’s armies needed constant resupply of men, equipment, ammunition, fuel and other materials. These would have to come in by sea but it was known that the Germans would not only defend the few major ports but destroy them before withdrawing.

The drastic answer was to build two artificial harbors. This extraordinary venture involved the most ingenious engineering and staggering amounts of construction. All this was achieved in a short space of time. Under conditions of great secrecy, code named MULBERRY, two sites in Scotland were established.

The book describes not just the methods used but the men who made this miracle possible. How these massive structures fared and the contribution they made is told in this fascinating book.

Guy Hartcup was a published author of long standing and the leading authority on the MULBERRY story.

Review :

Guy Hartcup writes a new book here based on the technical means developed by the British during World War II. Through this book, he develops a scientific manner of the creation, installation, and the influence of artificial harbors, on the victorious ally in Western Europe. Many sketches and drawings embellish the text. The author explains the impact of weather conditions (tides, storms, bad weather...) on these two ports as one of the two ports as one of the two, american sector, did not resist the severe storm that hit the coast to mid-June 1944. - 39/45 Magazine

Description du livre Pen Sword Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The story of the Mulberry harbours must rank among the most remarkable to emerge from the Second World War. In terms of engineering achievement, it is surely one of the greatest of all time.Allied planners correctly anticipated that the Germans would deny, either by destruction or dogged defence, the vital Channel ports in the aftermath of D-Day. If the invading armies could not be kept resupplied, OVERLORD would fail. The only solution was to design, build, transport and install two massive artificial harbours.How this highly ambitious plan was implemented is told with clarity and authority in this superb book. The text, admirably free of unnecessary technical jargon, is well supported with photographs, diagrams and tables, which demonstrate vividly the scale of this great venture. The irony is that the real enemy turned out not to be the Germans but the elements. Code Name Mulberry is a first class account of all aspects of this extraordinary chapter in the history of the Second World War. N° de réf. du libraire PAS9781848845589
