An essential addition to your library

I'm so happy to now own this book; waited long for the release but the wait was very much worth it. Use this book for historical reference, first hand accounts or to prepare/ accompany you for your battlefield visits. A fantastic book and I'm pretty certain one of the most relevant and up to date books available regarding June the 6th. An absolute must for those of us who want to find out that little bit more. Alot of book for not alot of money. Talking of which, all author royalties go to two charities which help maintain Normandy battlefield sites; so in buying this we help to safeguard a little piece of history.show more
