Stephen Ambrose is my favorite WWII authors. Most of his books seen well researched and based on personal narratives. It's not a book for the grand strategic vision of the Normandy Campaign, but it is a great book for first person narratives. Thought it was a great read.

An excellent book by one of my favourite writers. Ambrose, an American, does pay much of his attention to the American efforts on D-Day, but gives enough due to the British and Canadian landings as well. His style of writing is perfectly suited to the subject, and his attention to detail is ideal. Highly recommended.

Clasic story with lots of annecdotes.

easy to read

Once again a book by an American about D-Day where the Canadians and British are relegated to the role of extras. Despite the fact that Canada had the second toughest beach and extended the furthest inland from the beaches... The Brits get even less coverage than the Canadians if that is possible. It is very much a propaganda effort, but still well written.
