    1. This book was highly detailed, but easy to understand and absorb. Once I was done with it I passed it to my father to enjoy. And I know he definitely enjoyed it quite a bit. We both share an interest in american history. It was very entertaining, engaging, and informative.


    2. “The D-Day Atlas” tells the story of the D-Day landings and follow-up battles in words and pictures. The maps are numerous, colorful and informative. They show the locations and movements of the various units without the distracting terrain lines found on some other maps. The photos add a sense of realism while the drawings of the ships, planes and tanks provide the engineer’s perspective of the equipment.Do not let the visual effects overshadow the narrative of the battles. Author Charles [...]


    3. This isn't a book you read! This is a book you love. It has tons of maps that you can study and being a map person it is a joy to see so many maps in one book. I have also been to the beach fronts and we took this book with us to understand the distances that troops moved, to see the beach front set ups and what not. If you like WW2 in the European Theatre and you want to feel closer to Dday then this book is for you to buy and sift through. I have owned the book for a few years and it is used a [...]


    4. I'll be brief: If you have read, are in the process of reading, or are planning to read any book on the Normandy Invasion, this is an essential companion. For example, Overlord (Max Hastings, very good maps), Decision at Normandy (Carlo D'Este, decent maps, but not enough of them), Six Armies at Normandy (John Keegan, mediocre maps). Or anything else for that matter. Five stars. [note: I own and reviewed the earlier edition of this book - but the superb maps remain the same]


    5. This an excellent, detailed, and very accurate depiction of the fateful day proclaimed in the title. The maps are wonderfully insightful if a little seriously drawn. Everything about this book is entoxicating to any history buff and may turn a few waffling minds over to the history literature side. Reveiw of a contest copy won via GoodReads


    6. I bought this book to go along with the historical-work by John Keegan, Six Armies in Normady, and to help make sense of all the towns and geography! :) It includes many various maps and photos.



    7. Sue Ann and I visited Normandy last year and saw many of the sites shown in the landing beaches. This book had very detailed maps, which added to its enjoyment.
