An exceptional writer, a larger than life historical subject, and a capable narrator should have all of the ingredients for a great audiobook. But somehow the work just did not work for me. It seemed to lack the focus and detail that could keep my interest.
A great book and very well narrated. Mr. Keegan covers the background and the details of the battle of Normandy from pre D-Day through the liberation of Paris from the large strategic perspective down to the first-person descriptions of the individual battles. While it is at times very detailed, the continuity flows extremely well. A detailed map of Normandy would be helpful. A classic of WW II history. . .
As a long time Ducatista, I guess my expectations were simply too high. . . The book is another pointless "how I spent my Italian vacation." Very little details or real insight into Ducati, or the details of the business turn-around.
