All those aerial shots and maps should be useful as reference for a more credible diorama excellent addition to your library. * DetailScaleView *
Messrs Forty and Marriott provide a seriously entertaining look at events in Normandy from ground level and all points upwards using the perfect mix of facts and dates aligned to genuinely excellent archive and modern photography. I cannot fault this book and thoroughly recommend it. * War History Online *
The text is well presented and the result is a most useful guidebook to visiting the inland battles of the Normandy Campaign, some of which are often overlooked. * Gun Mart *
Without doubt, this would be a most useful guide to have when touring the Normandy Battlefields, which it excels in explaining the complexities of the campaign, blow by blow, battle by battle. A must-read. * Britain at War Magazine *
Essential reading for anyone with an interest in the military history of WW2 and specifically the D-Day landings. Amazing photographs and maps, this is a coffee table book you will not be able to put down! Marriott and Forty know their subject and share their expertise and knowledge in a way that's not been available in previous books about such a complex subject matter. * Books Monthly *
This will appeal across a wide range of military tastes - the modeller, the military historian, the battlefield visitor, and the wargamer - and at a very fair price for a book of this calibre. * Miniature Wargames - Chris Jarvis *
A very well presented, nicely designed and engaging book on a timeless subject; highly recommended. * Editor - Model Boat World *
For the sheer volume of information both textual and visual, this book is excellent value for a work of reference it is invaluable and is strongly recommended to students of the NW Europe campaign. * Casemate Journal - Fortress Study Group *
