I just want to say this is one of the greatest war books I have ever seen, the book isn't just a book. It is sort of history display, when you open the pages of the books their are reproductions of historic militaria. Their are so many maps it is unreal, I would totally recommend this to anyone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book is a well put together and researched book that gives the reader just a small taste of D-Day. The book does this well by including documents and other war time memorabelia. I would definately reccomend this book to anyone who has interest in D-Day or would like to learn about D-Day.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
