Exceptional book that makes one feel as if one was storming the beaches of Normandy. The valor and courage of both sides, comes through loud and clear. True there may be a slight anti-English bias, however it doesn't detract from the overall message of the book.
As with many Ambrose books, there is some overlap. Stories that are told in other Ambrose books are repeated here.
A long read but well worth the effort.
