This is a concise account of a battle that remians controversial. The author describes, and the book illustrates, the different phases of the action. while skirting the disputes that still surround some of the Allied generals. For those unfamiliar with the campaign, or for those intrested in a bried introduction, it is recommended.
The Coast Defense Journal (August 2013)
Author Angus Konstam does a masterful job of telling the tale of hopes, incompetence, bravery and eventual Allied success. Though greatly outnumbered, the Germans did quite well in slowing down and nearly defeating the landing. This is all enhanced by some great period photos from both sides and the art work of Mark Stille. As is typical of the series, we are provided with some great campaign maps and information on visiting this area today. Overall, it is a fascinating read of this important operation and one that I can easily recommend to you.
