The historian Georges Bernage is one of France's premier experts on the 1944 Normandy Invasion. He has published over forty books on the subject since 1978.
"This book is a mesh of a straight forward history book and a photo
book on Operation Epsom in 1944 outside of Caen... The author is
painstaking in his efforts to tell the complete story of this
battle. He also does not have an axe to grind, nor does he take any
sides. This is history as it was meant to be, purely retelling an
important part of our history without embellishment or any skew.
The written history is done well enough for any history buff who
normally eschews picture books."-- "A Wargamers Needful Things"
"This is a beautifully presented and thoroughly researched book which describes the various phases of the offensive from both sides, brought further to life with a considerable number of maps, veterans accounts, and photographs, including images of key areas of the battlefield as they appears today."-- "Pegasus Archive"
