This review is from: Dog Company: The Boys of Pointe du Hoc--the Rangers Who Accomplished D-Day's Toughest Mission and Led the Way across Europe (Kindle Edition)
I rated this book with 4 stars because I was very impressed with the author's research which has the effect of a first person account of the history of the Rangers who were assigned the D-Day task of over-coming the defenses at Point de Hoc. The book then follows this unit through the proceeding months as they meet and defeat the German enemy some of whom are members of the German armies most elite troops. In a quote from a German soldier's after action report, the soldier states, "these are better soldiers than us." I would strongly recommend this book to any/all WWII buffs who are interested in the actions of an actual fighting unit, their training, morale, psychological outlook, individual bravery, skills with both their issued weapons and training with enemy weapons. Input and training received from the British Commando's. If the bulk of the American Army had been as proficient both physically and psychologically as this unit as well as the American Paratroopers the war would have ended in late 1944.
