Detailed account, very balanced,
This review is from: Overlord: D-Day and the Battle for Normandy (Hardcover)
For readers not initiated in army terminology, 'Overlord' might present a challenge, for they will be spending a lot of time in the (usefull) appendices with information about acronyms and army-structure.
'Overlord' is at times a personal account, given the picture of the authors father in an army vehicle and the authors own military experience.
Especially interesting is the emphases on the excellent skills of the German forces, despite the catastrophous decisions made bij the German commanders.
A rare occasion where calling a book 'depressing' is meant as compliment...
