really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction

I liked it right up until the end. The book had been told from a primarily American perspective, and then, after finishing the report of the American's, ending on D-Day plus a day or so, the author suddenly switched back to D-Day morning from the British/Canadian POV. My issue is not with telling that part of the history, just that it felt awkwardly jammed on at the end. An afterthought....

The research is extensive, the book contains helpful maps and several narrative-assisting pictures. It may not be THE definitive book, but for people looking for a good, readable overview, this is probably the least-dry option out there.
