An exceptional book that gave me a good feel for what this extraordinary man was about. Very heavy on detail about the battles he waged - what regiment did what - slowed the narrative. The info on his romantic life was written in a romantic fashion and was highly interesting.
The comprehensive and detailed accounts of the human beings involved from privates to C in C.
No, impossible, even from an emotional standpoint, not to mention the length.
This book made a profound impression on me. I have studied WWII since I was 8 years old and read all the Ambrose, Churchill, German Generals, Keegan etc. This book is as good as it gets. I thought the narrator did an excellent job but pushed too hard to pronounce German and French words - even Dutch - with the foreign accent. It was distracting. When finished with the book I took a walk by myself and then went surfing to get back to today's reality.
