User reviews about the book
I hate books
Books are mean so is the internet
Comprehensive and cohesive
By Hiker at heart
A great look at a singularity in human history. Nothing compares to the single-minded focus the allies utilized when planning D-Day. The author’s research and access to the stories of those who were there make this book readable and authentic.
Best story of D Day
I've read a lot of books on the subject, and this is by far the best. If you want to know the whole story of that day, this is it. Excellent!
D-Day should be required reading in every public school in the USA. This sacrifice for freedom must never be forgotten.
This is a book that should be read by every high school age student . It tells a story of why we are a free country today and the men who are responsible for it !! This book is awesome!!
I read many D-Day books, incl. Cornelius Ryan's 'The longest day,' and in order to get a comprehensive picture I think both of these need to be read.
If you speak German, both of these books will make you smirk with their occasional use of German words, which are almost always spelled incorrectly. There was certainly no German going over the final version before publishing both books, therefore also some of the details of the accounts from the Wehrmacht side might need to be taken with a grain of salt. But I think especially this book goes to great lengths to give an as accurate as possible description of the bigger picture, as well as the individual fate of the men who fought on this day of days. If one liked 'Band of Brothers' I guess you'll like this book as well. I do.
