Not being an impartial reviewer in this case (I proofread the manuscript and am the source of a lot of photographs), I'd nevertheless like to make a few comments about this work. Although not painting the story in the smallest detail (not fitting within the scope of the work), Mr Rawson has a pleasant way of telling things and knows how to give the right examples to create the right atmosphere. Being the first guide of this battlefield, I can only recommend it. Trying, however, to show some degree of impartiality, I must mention some minor points of criticism on the work:
- The choice of illustrations gives an excellent overview of the battle, though several pictures are not taken at Walcheren at all and used here as example photos without being mentioned as such. And the overall photo quality is not excellent, due to having used mostly reproductions.
- The cover, showing artwork of a Duplex Drive tank, that was not used during the Walcheren landings, remains a mystery to me.
