'Any encyclopedia should be a ready reference for people, places and things, and the people, places and things of OPERATION OVERLORD are here in abundance. In fact, it's filled with delightful tidbits of information, from the German phonetic alphabet (Anton, Bruno, Caesar, Dora….) to the optimal drop altitude and descent time for a paratrooper to the absence of translators to help Allied soldiers cope with Germany's many 'Ostruppen' to details of weaponry (particularly aircraft) to motion pictures on the invasion and more. Tillman brings a touch of whimsy to some of his entries, citing jokes or making wise crack, including a particularly biting if accurate assessment of Winston Churchill. This is a book to savor.'
