A story about the project to find ways to accurately predict the behavior of waves and beaches, in preparation for the DDay invasion. Very cool science, informative and entertainingly written.

The best book I've seen on the topic. Out of print but easily found. He writes well, and the photos are excellent (tho all black & white). Highly recommended.
