    Subjective, British view on the Allied invasion.

    Disappointing. James Holland makes it look like a British event, with Montgomery as the star player. It already starts in the prologue, describing a meeting of Allied commanders: "a giant map that Montgomery had been using", "Monty took the lead". The chapter on operation Goodwood is even worse. This operation was a costly failure of Montgomery that nearly cost him his job. But Holland doesnot give this information. He writes that "some qualification is needed", saying that "for Montgomery Goodwood was not a failure". Holland blames Dempsey for the failure, and makes Monty a gallant gentleman for not blaming Dempsey. If you are also a fan of Montgomery and want to read, without any criticism, how "good" Monty was... buy this book. If you want an objective, structured account of D-day and the fighting in Normandy, buy Antony Beevor's book
