A really good little edition in Osprey's Campaign Series, this book is unusual in that if follows the Normandy Campaign all the way through to the end of the Falaise Pocket- so we can see the entire pace- one that for all the complaints of various factions, was completed in 80 days - about ten days ahead of the "Schedule". This book gives you the tenterhooks of D-Day- -but we know the Germans are outmanned and very out-teched. But then it goes into the "stalemate" of the Hedgegrows and the Clash ...more

While not a bad overview of the actual events of the Normandy Campaign several factors make this a poor work. The broad based and un-referenced opinions and statements given in the introduction and conclusion are questionable at best. The author seems biased in favor of the British forces over the Americans and Germans.

As a quick overview for the topic, it was ok. Had some decent color plates and maps to boot. Just don't expect anything really in depth as it just skims through the campaign in less than 100 pages so it's hard to do justice to the entire Normandy campaign in that space. For example, the Normandy beach landings get a small paragraph each but that's about it.

If you already know the basics of the Battle of Normandy, it's easily skippable imo.
