Battle of Balin and Moore's retreat.
This is probably an excellant book but it doesnt translate well into an audiobook. With the obvious removal of maps the casual listener has very little idea where many of these Spanish towns are located in relation to eachother. And therefore cant fully appreciate the hows and whys of military operations in Spain and Portugal.
Still it is an exhaustive, thourough, enjoyable book.
Yes I would recommend to anyone interested in D day and the battle for France.
The Narration was very well done. But we Americans don't really sound like that do we?
Must have been written for children because the amount of detail is very limited with many of the finer points being overlooked entirely.
Robert Massie's "Castles of Steel" has an excellent and thorough account of Jutland.
This book as the summary says is more about the impact of the battle on the conscience of Britain than a detailed account of the actual battle itself. After the battle is over the narrator drones on for another two hours talking about the construction of monuments and places in Britain named "waterloo".
The narrator sounded like he was eating during the entire performance.
