A good book, which justifies all accounts about the Americans on D-Day.
One really big problem, is that the author is extrememely anti-English and finds every excuse to make English soldiers (who served and gave their lives for this campaign) look absolutely useless in the D-Day battles.
He has nothing good to say about the English at all.
If I would have known that this book was about the Americans only, I wouldn`t have bought it at all.
The only mention of the English soldiers is at the beginning. Going along through the book, all you get every now and then is `the British beaches`.
No real stories or accounts from English soldiers.
This is a great book, but does not take into account, the whole allied picture of D-Day. There is more mention of Germans than the Allied Forces.
