    From America's preeminent military historian, Stephen E. Ambrose, comes a brilliant telling of the war in Europe, from D-Day, June 6, 1944, to the end; 11 months later, on May 7, 1945. To create this astonishing narrative, Ambrose draws from his 5 acclaimed works about that conflict, particularly from the definitive and comprehensive D-Day and Citizen Soldiers.

    K. Mckenna says: "The Stephen Ambrose highlight reel"
    "Mislead and Disappointed"

    What disappointed you about The Victors?

    From the book description I was lead to believe the Steven Ambrose was going to address the personalities of Eisenhower and the Generals that reported to him. I was very interested to read how the massive personalities and egos of WWII interacted. To read insight into the disagreements and politics of high military command. This text delivered on none of that.

    Instead, It is primarily a rehash of Ambrose's other work. There was little in this book that was new. Basically a rereading of parts of "Band of Brothers."


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen E. Ambrose again?

    Yes. Ambrose is an excellent writer and has a great passion for the history of WWII.
    The "Band of Brothers" was excellent. And another title that I cannot recall currently, I wound informative and a good read. This particular text did not deliver on what the book jacket implied would be covered. To little new stories, a lot of the same old, same old.
