The story is written in a cogent manner that takes the reader (listener) through conflict of WWII in Europe while describing the broad strokes of the conflict and including details of soldiers at the personal level. The narrator does a good job of capturing the listener's attention.
The author's previous two book on WWII in the European theater are equally well written and narrated. This trilogy places WWII in Europe in an accurate and complete historical account.
Ganser is talented at subtly changing his voice and inflection to capture quotes and characters.
The book is engaging -- it makes my commute enlightening and entraining.
Must buy along with the previous two books.
Attention to the personalities of the leaders and the clashes between them and how soldiers died because of their leaders stupidity.
The expanse of military politics.
No favs - it is non-fiction.
His flourish in pronouncing non-English place names and other nouns in (what I assume to be) native accents begins to grate on the listener....
The Longest Book.
years ago, I read the first two in the series, life's too busy to read this one so audio book was the perfect fit. Very much enjoyed it, however the narrator's butchering of Dutch pronunciations (Nijmegen!!) was painful to listen to over and over again.
A necessary read for any student of military history. Atkinson's book is well researched and compelling. The narration by Ganser immerses the reader directly into the war and the minds of those who lived it.
Great writing ,wonderful research and effective story. However it's Re mag en not Rem a gen!
Comprehensive, moves fairly well, avoids some pitfalls. Allies are hard to satisfy.
Other two books of series. Complete the history of Army in ETO.
He delivered it all.
Could not imagine it.
Good for daily wals
All three books are outstanding. They're filled with many bits of information that I didn't know, and I thought I knew a lot about the ETO.
Makes me rethink Patton.
Gave me a greater understanding of what those who came before me fought for, and thru. The book does a great job both chronologically and meticulously from both sides of the war.
I feel that somehow this trilogy needs to be read/listened to by every one who proclaims to be patriotic. what this great generation of americans did words are incapable of describing. I'm humbled and so proud to be a son of one of these heros an enlisted American marine.
