Great pictures 24 Mar. 2013
By Jetpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have a soft-cover version of this, which I got at a retail store, and it's just great. I really love the fold out showing the detail of the 22nd Armoured Brigade - the use of pictures of actual tanks really makes you see what the brigade was made up of. The book also discusses tactics, weapons and has many real life pictures. Highly recommend.

An irritatingly flawed book 15 Oct. 2013
By Glenn I Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a book which brings together a lot of existing information in a single volume, is well written, and prolificly illustrated, but alas is very poorly edited.

The text provides all the fine details which those who are interested in military history will want, and David Porter is to be congratulated on his research. He covers the back story of Operation Overlord and 7th Armd Div in fairly broad brush terms, which will be only too familiar to most readers of this sort of book. But once he gets to the nitty gritty of how an armoured regiment or infantry battalion operated in battle 1944, he provides excellent details and descriptions. For example, his outline of the work of the Adminstration Troop of an Armoured unit is textbook stuff. His treatment of command problems in the British Army in Normandy are also quite insightful. His battle descriptions are both riveting and complete. Wargamers will find much here to inspire and educated them.

However the book is very badly let down by its maps, graphics and photos. Miscaptioned photos are alas all too common, and mistaking an A13 Cruiser for an A15 Crusader (p.27) is perhaps excusable. But providing a map of the D-Day landings which confuses the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division with the 3rd British Infantry Division, omitting the latter altogether from the map, and showing the Canadians landing at Sword Beach (where 3 Brit Inf Div landed) rather than at Juno Beach, is inexcusable. Maps also lack keys to symbols, so the reader is left to puzzle out symbols such as the gray dots on the Alamein map (minefields?). Likewise providing a large graphic of a Lee tank (p.36) which is mislablled as a Grant, is an error which no-one familiar with the subject matter could possible make. The Orders of Battle charts use standard Nato symbols but bizzarely the maps use German style symbols (tank units being a squashed lozenge, for example). Many of the OB charts use the wrong symbols for untis - for example at p.25 the NATO Armoured Infantry symbol is used indescriminately for armour, artillery and infantry units - however later OB charts do use correct symbols. These childish Editor's mistakes completely undermine the authority and integrity of the book, which one imagines must have been very disappointing to the Author on seeing the final product.

When a substantial, new and attractive book, which claims to be thoroughly researched and to "offer the military enthusiast and wargamer a valuable resource" is so obvioulsy produced by Editors and Designers who have no knowledge whatever of the subject matter, and who have take no care at all to check their design elements with someone who does (such as the Author), one can only feel frustration and disappointment that new and egregious errors have been so gratuitously and unnecessarily let loose on the world.
Enjoyable overview of a battle 5 Oct. 2014
By Michael Eastes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A well-illustrated guide to a battle long ago, which few but well-read tank soldiers and historians have much knowledge about. This also gives the person who has never served a graphic look at how big and diverse military units can be.
7th Armoured Division at Villers Bocage and Fifth Guards Tank Army at Kursk and they are excellent books. They are very detailed 10 Nov. 2014

I own now the 1 SS Panzer Corps at Villers Bocage, 7th Armoured Division at Villers Bocage and Fifth Guards Tank Army at Kursk and they are excellent books. They are very detailed and have a lot of good pictures.
