5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and un-biased, 29 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Overlord: D-Day and the Battle for Normandy, 1944 (Pan Grand Strategy Series) (Paperback)
This book provides a very informative picture of the D-Day landings and the immediate aftermath. It pulls no punches and gives an un-biased appraisal of each armies performance and command structure, warts and all. It understands that this was an action fought by men who were basically civilians from democracies, on the allied side, and the problems that such an army ineviatably has in pressing home battles that demand a high attrition rate. (Maybe Stephen Ambrose could take a lesson from this ).Recommended
