Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book, well writen in a good narrative style.
My main concern is that it only tells part of the story of the battle for Walcheren Island. It completely neglects the actions of the Canadians and 52nd Lowland Division on the east of the island to capture the Walcheren Causeway and eventually cross the Sloe Channel (Op Mallard). These actions were a vital part of the plan to capture Walcheren Island. The valiant attack on the Walcheren Causeway initiated by the Canadians on 31st October and carried on by 52nd Lowland Division through the next few days undoubteldy contributed to the success of Operation Infatuates I & II in that these action served to fix a large number of German forces at the east of the island away from the risky aphibious assaults to the south and west.
Despite this glaring omission the book is well worthwhile purchasing especially for the very good section on touring Walcheren which is a must for anyone trying to understand the complexities of the Flushing battles.
A very good book which could be better if it told the complete story.

Not being an impartial reviewer in this case (I proofread the manuscript and am the source of a lot of photographs), I'd nevertheless like to make a few comments about this work. Although not painting the story in the smallest detail (not fitting within the scope of the work), Mr Rawson has a pleasant way of telling things and knows how to give the right examples to create the right atmosphere. Being the first guide of this battlefield, I can only recommend it. Trying, however, to show some degree of impartiality, I must mention some minor points of criticism on the work:
- The choice of illustrations gives an excellent overview of the battle, though several pictures are not taken at Walcheren at all and used here as example photos without being mentioned as such. And the overall photo quality is not excellent, due to having used mostly reproductions.
- The cover, showing artwork of a Duplex Drive tank, that was not used during the Walcheren landings, remains a mystery to me.

As Mr Houterman says in his review, it's a shame that the book's cover shows a Duplex Drive tank coming ashore - they were not used in the landings.

The RAF Air Battle Staff Course makes regular visits to Walcheren because Op INFATUATE is used as a case study on the use of Air Power in Joint operations. I have therefore been to Walcheren a number of times. Despite this, the book told me many facts I had not previously known and I now have a deeper insight into the operation to retake Walcheren.
