This new title in the 'Despatches From The Front' Series is fully up to the high standard
already set by earlier books in the series. Maps and a photo-plate section enhance the text which has been
compiled by the co-authors from despatches sent back to explain target achievement, challenges and future
objectives. This is a must for all historians and serious enthusiasts working in this area of the Second World War, but it is offered at an affordable price within the means of many more readers, who should not be deterred by the primary source nature of the content because it is very readable. Highly recommended.

As this series has expanded, it has become a very important information source for historians and enthusiasts seeking to understand the evolution of WWII.

This book provides many valuable insights into the minds of politicians and commanders in the field.
