    While not a bad overview of the actual events of the Normandy Campaign several factors make this a poor work. The broad based and un-referenced opinions and statements given in the introduction and conclusion are questionable at best. The author seems biased in favor of the British forces over the Americans and Germans. Most concerning many of the descriptions provided for the images in the book are blatantly wrong; mis-identifying both units and equipment which, brings into question the accuracy of the book in general. I would not recommend this book for those who are not already familiar with the Normandy Campaign.
