The best "big picture" book I have read on the campaign in France and Germany. Covers many points that I was not familiar with ( for example, shortages of replacement troops for both the US and the British, shortages of munitions, and the many other issues of logistics). Very well written!
According to Tom Brokaw this was the greatest generation so by that definition, the generals must have been the greatest leaders! This is an attempt to replicate Douglas Southall Freeman book on Lee's Lieutenants for the WWII generals. In my opinion, the copy surpasses the original.

Old-fashioned military history at its best! This a detailed examination of operational command of Allied forces in northwest Europe in 1944 and 1945.
A good analysis but the conclusion, that the Allies won simply because they had numerical superiority, is very determinist.
