Reads well but!
on 24 September 2012
The book is very well written and easy to read given the complexities of the makeup of the various armies'. I found the book came to an abrupt end. I keep looking for the last chapter. Some form of summary on what went on and the mistakes made would have made it an impressive book.
He referred to the 40,000 plus from the Irish Republic who served in WW11 as "Anglo Irish". I doubt is many of them were "Anglo", they were fighting against fascism and pointing out that the Swastika flew from the German Embassy in Dublin was totally irrelevant to the story. I found it to be a cheap shot in what was a very interesting book.
