    Story
    (232)

    It is the 20th century's unrivaled epic: At a staggering price, the United States and its allies liberated Europe and vanquished Hitler. In the first two volumes of his best-selling Liberation Trilogy, Rick Atkinson recounted the history of how the American-led coalition fought its way from North Africa and Italy to the threshold of victory. Now he tells the most dramatic story of all - the titanic battle in Western Europe. D-Day marked the commencement of the war's final campaign, and Atkinson's astonishingly fresh account of that enormous gamble sets the pace for the masterly narrative that follows.

    David I. Williams says: "Well Written Overview"
    "A Staggeringly Brilliant Book"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely


    What did you like best about this story?

    The comprehensive and detailed accounts of the human beings involved from privates to C in C.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, impossible, even from an emotional standpoint, not to mention the length.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
