Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a book and documentary using a different approach to examine the experience of Europe during World War II, and provides myth-busting tests to supplement accounts of the campaign to liberate Europe in a fascinating, different take on events."
--James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review (August 2012)

"This book focuses on the D-Day landings on June 6, 1944, unitl Germany's surrender in May 1945. It is told by the Allied soldiers who lived through it..."
--WWII History (Late Fall 2012)
