Masses of detail, let down by poor layout and maps,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Definitive Battlefield Guide to the D-Day Normandy Landing Beaches: Sixth Edition with Latitude and Longitude References (Paperback)
I have to give credit to the authors for their phenomenal research. The history, text and descriptions are first class, and this is great resource for anyone visiting Normandy with WW2 in mind. The SatNav co-ordinates are really useful.
However, the layout of the book needs a re-think (e.g. start a new location on a new page) and the over-simplified maps let it down. Also, there's too many modern day photos, many not directly linked to the neighbouring text. More photos from 1944 (if they exist and can be found and used) would be welcome.
Nevertheless, it considerably enhanced my experience of what my father must have been through on the Mulberry harbour.
