Operation Overlord, the Normandy invasion-like William the Conqueror's before it or the Inchon landing afterwards-will long be studied as a classic in military planning, logistics, and operations. Overlord depended to a remarkable degree upon the use of air power in virtually all its forms. A half-century ago, aircraft were primitive vehicles of war compared to the modern attackers of the Gulf War era, with their precision weapons, advanced navigational, sensor systems, and communications. Yet, the airplane still had a profound impact upon the success of the invasion. Simply stated without air power, Normandy would have been impossible.

This book is impossible to read. The type is so tiny and can not be enlarged. No matter how much I tried I could not get the print large enough to see. If B&N can not make the print large enough to read it should be taken off their list. Now I have to pay for somethig that is unreadable! A rating has to be made before B&N will let it be submitted but in my estimation if you can't read it how can you give a review! It really deserves no star at all!
Book has potential to be a good read except that the pages are cut off at the bottom and some of the text is missing
