1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Stephen Austin on July 18, 2011
Format: Paperback
Volume 11 of Morison's history of the Navy in WW II. He received a Commission and served as a historian on the scene in several campaigns, which explains his familiarity with many of the senior officers near his rank. Morison writes as if he were fleshing out ships' log entries and action reports. There are few passages containing florid description or patriotic reminiscence, which would have no place in an official report. Thus the book is not long. A simple example--the Naval logistics of the stunning innovative concept of installing dozer blades on tanks to crash the Normandy hedgerows is covered in two or three sentences. In all his books, the vastness of the bluejacket human endeavor predominates the discussion--how thousands and thousands of landing craft crew were trained from zero, the struggle to maintain the Atlantic and Pacific amphibious forces together. There are better books for the human drama on one of the most important days in the Twentieth Century, and better books to integrate Army and Navy and British tactics together with continual new discoveries of German documents. One might consider this book a primer before reading Cornelius Ryan or Stephen Ambrose.
