    The Commanders of D-Day examined

    An excellent book, but you should know that it's a command level history. D'este is writing about Montgomery and Bradley and Ike. People more interested in reading about what the dogfaces went through on the beaches should read "D-Day" by Stephen Ambrose.

    Outstanding Review of Normandy Campaign

    Carlo D'Este goes beyond the mere review of facts. He discusses the motives, the politics, the often acrimonious negotiations between the strong personalities of the major players. He never settles for just recounting the failures and snafus of those first 2 1/2 months of Overlord, he helps us understand why events happene as they did. He achieves balance between being critically analytical and sympathetic.

    War never goes according to plan.

    This book describes the tremendous ongoing struggles of the military leaders on both sides of the battle for Normandy to organize and direct the chaos of war. Gaining the beachead on D-day was only the beginning of a months-long bloody fury as the Allies advanced on Germany. Deeply researched, fluidly written, this book shows the process of military decision-making and the difficulties of commanding a multi-national force with the most dire consequences in the balance. This is no doubt the definitive work on the battle of Normandy.
