This is a book that can rival, or compliment, the other volumes on the Blitz and Battle of Britain. The Battle of France as a subject has suffered for years in the wake of the Battle of Britain for the sole reason, France was a defeat. This book puts the French campaign into context, puts it where it should be as an account of a battle and its place in history. There is no glorification of war it is, like its companion volumes, written in diary format, day by day.
A book so wide ranging has its minor faults and mistakes but, they are not many considering the subject matter. The book, like its companions, is well illustrated throughout with photographs, maps and diagrams. If the book has a fault it may be because it dwells on one or two high profile personalities maybe at the expense of others who were less known. If you want to know what the Battle of France was like then read this. If you are a general reader interested in the air war then you will not be disappointed in this book it is a lasting memory and tribute to those, of both sides, who fought and died in the air war that was the Battle of France.
