D-Day Normandy

D-Day Normandy writen by Donald M. Goldstein, Katherine V. Dillion, and J. Michael Wenger is a great book for WWII buffs. It is more a fact based book than most novels. Which is alright because it has hundred of great pictures from the time. It also gives detaled information from what lead to Americans landing at Normandy. To D-Day its self and the machines used in that time. So I give this book two thumbs up.

If A Picture is Worth a 1000 Words......

Photos and more photos, that's what you have in this book. There must be a thousand of them, but I didn't count them.This book takes the reader by the hand, in a bit of elementary school field trip fashion, and literally walks through Operation Overlord. The text is not over anyone's head, and always relates to the photos. The photos then tell the story, along with the captions which point out interesting, easy to overlook, details. It's almost like reading three books at once, the text, the photos, and the captions. But it's very educational and entertaining.You'll see every form of naval lading craft ever used. Planes, guns, ships, you name it and they have a picture of it in this book. Allied personnel, and German personnel, all called "Antagonists", the title of the first chapter. There's even a great picture of General Patton inspecting a P-51, without a Helmet! The book is wonderfully organized and laid out. It reads very quickly, despite all the bouncing around you'll do between pictures, captions, and text. Every photo is marked in the text at it's proper location. When the author talks about Churchill, then there is a note to look at the picture of Churchill. It's actually fun, if such a grave subject can be fun.Read, or look at, this book. It's amazing how you'll begin to see the events, machines, people in a much clearer light. The massiveness of the event will become clear, and the images will tell you the story. If only all the D-Day photos were in one volume.....

Collector's Item for any WWII "Buff".

The book does a credible job of providing a history of the events and people that led up to the invasion, as well as the invasion itself. But its real strength is as a pictorial history and resource. In this arena it is unsurpassed!
