A short but well written book,
This review is from: Pegasus Bridge: D-Day - the Daring British Airborne Raid (Paperback)
I couldn't put this book down, very well written and moves along at a nice pace. Covering everything from the 2 year period before the landings to the 'where are they now' summary. The only fault I can bring is that it is too short, missing out on other vital story lines from the event - but I suppose you have to draw the line somewhere, and the author does explain that this book was written as a lighter experience for him after his Eisenhower epic he had just finished.
Ambrose has a problem with criticizing other sections/high command without elaborating - but again there were other stories to tell from that day.
Altogether a good read and a nice prelude to more investigation of the event.
