From the Publisher
"Mercatante (independent scholar) challenges conventional wisdom about Allied success in Europe through an impressive operational overview of Operation Barbarossa and various battles on the Eastern Front, D-Day, and the final drive into Germany. . . . Summing Up: Recommended."
"Even those familiar with World War II scholarship will find here analyses of economic and technological matters that historians have often glossed over or mentioned only in passing. . . .There is … much sound analysis scattered through this book."
Michigan War Studies Review
"A thought-provoking book…Mercatante's main purpose is to counter widespread arguments that brute force was the main reason for success in World War II….The Germans, he argues, repeatedly demonstrated that qualitative advantages could be more important than quantitative superiority in men and materiel, and that the Allied armies eventually won because they became better at mobile and combined arms warfare than their enemies….[Mercatante's] case deserves to be heard."
