Jean Paul Pallud, author of the highly acclaimed The Battle of the Bulge Then and Now, presents — for the first time through comparison ‘then and now’ photographs — a detailed account of the Battle of France: the forty-five traumatic days from May 10 to June 24, 1940 that resulted in one of the most remarkable military victories of modern times. During those six weeks, six nations found themselves at war, fighting across four countries. From the polders of the Netherlands in the north to the mountains of the Alps in the south, and from the Rhine valley to the Atlantic coast, Jean Paul Pallud explores every corner of the battlefield, the camera recording the scenes today where fifty years ago Dutch, Belgian, German, French, British and Italian soldiers were locked in mortal combat. Battles great and small are described and illustrated to colour the canvas of both the broad strategy and the individual firefight in Hitler’s victorious campaign of Blitzkrieg in the West.

Book review featured in

Highlight: 'Anyone thinking about a self-guided tour of the 1940 battlefields would do well to have a copy of this.'

Gun Mart Magazine, June 23

There is just so much in this book for those just interested in the history, as well as super detail for both figure and vehicle modellers, diorama ideas and with the 'Now' comparisons are great for the battlefield visitor. It is also the largest/best collection of archive images of the 1940 Blitzkrieg that I can think of, all in one book. Recommended without any hesitation.
