5.0 out of 5 stars Ive been meaning to write this for 6 years - and now you will know why., 17 July 2013
This review is from: Dunkirk: Fight to the Last Man (Paperback)
I read this book 6 years ago as a take-away for my holidays. I had always had an arm-chair interest in both of the World Wars, but this book reached where no other had! Its now 6 years on and I'm still reading and collecting around this books main theme. I can't explain enough how every aspect of this book leads to yet another long period of enjoyable research and reading. Just to give you one example; we are all aware of the glider assault on Pegasus bridge on D-day by the Para's but can you just imagine my shock when the Germans had used this principle 4 years earlier!!!! On the 10th May on the fort of Eden-Emael: and effectively it was just one of many initial Special forces activities that were engaged on that morning! Me reason for mentioning this is because for the following year of my life I sort-out every source and reference on this assault and it was just phenomenal; from whose initial idea it was to the training, practicing with new secret-weapons and principles; the German-para's determination and even the role of the glider-assault-pilot!!

Also (and I could go on-&-on) Question: If I asked what was the biggest tank battle of WW2 I'm guessing you would be thinking to the Eastern-front! Well the events leading up to Dunkirk and the battle of Hannut need to be revisited! Also 1939-40 who had the biggest and best tanks? And Rommel in 1940! And also this book lets us know the answer to the ever spoken question of 'Where was the RAF?' you cant read this book without finding the reason and appreciation of why; and the book is laced with hundreds of personal accounts ie: The RAF account of Flight lieutenant Bill Simpson; I could go on-&-on. The book is amazing and thank you to Hugh Sebag Monefiore for the catalyst of an amazing event that changed History.

I now have a WW2 Battledress and equipment! So that I not only read about it but can touch history. This book is amazing.
