Over the Battlefield: Operation EPSOM by Ian Daglish
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I have read it, I loved it, but still it was not enough. How do I like this great book with it beautiful Wo2 aerial photographs describing how operation Epsom started in the bocage, evolved against determined German opposition and stopped dead its tracks to German contra-attacks.

You will love it with all it great battlefield (aerial) photographs and the dispositions of troops, but it is not enough to get a "feel" of the battle.

4.0 out of 5 stars quick and reliable, 4 Sep 2013
It does what it should do and it does it quick and reliable. Use it when you need a quick temperature reading. It folds out easily, it measures easily, it cleans easily. It gets the job (well) done.
