Normandy 1944: once again the Brits will be bumbling through an attack on the much-vaunted Germans? Well no, this time the Germans have launched a tactical action and face the British on defence, notably the author's dad and his mates. By reversing the typical image of the campaign, and by considering it in great detail Baverstock brings a lot that is fresh to my understanding. Maps and diaries have been plundered to give you a feel of a local battalion under attack from some experienced formations; will it hold? How can it hold?
A useful specific to histories that cover the higher level where this battle might be a glorious footnote.
