“Absorbing… The reader finished this accessible history with the sense he has had a 360-degree look at Operation Overlord and its multinational cast… Terrifing reading.”—USA Today

“A dramatic, important, and instructive story, and Beevor tells it surpassingly well.”—The Washington Post 

“Where the book really scores is in its eye for the operational detail and its vivid reconstructions of the experience of battle, as unavoidable courage mixes with arbitrary tragedy.”—Lawrence Freedman, Foreign Affairs

“Beevor excels in recounting, from interviews with veterans and from the testimony of soldiers’ letters and reports, just what a bloody campaign the invasion was… Beevor is especially gripping in his account of the U.S. 120th Infantry… Beevor is to be commended for emphasizing a troubling theme: the inferiority of much Allied equipment.”—The Wall Street Journal

“His account of atrocities on both sides, of errors committed and of surpassing bravery makes for excellent – though often blood-soaked – reading. Beevor gets better with each book.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Beevor has written an in-depth campaign history…that should be read by beginners and experts alike.”—Library Journal
