I really enjoyed this book. It tells the story of the advance of U.S. soldiers through western Europe after D-day and takes you up to Germany's surrender. It doesn't read so much as a history book as it does more of a collection of memoirs from veterans on both sides of the war. I learned a great deal from reading this including what the soldiers were thinking and feeling during one of the most horrific campaigns of WW II and the intense competition between the Generals behind the scenes. Great read!

I have read several WWII books including "the Longest Day" and this is a true gem! It wasn't as cohesive as Band of Brother's, more a grouping of a lot of stories and activities that happened from d-day to v-e-day and a bit beyond there. You can tell that Ambrose did his homework for this one, inspite of the allegations of plagarism.

Ambrose tells the story of the American soilder from D-Day to Berlin in an engaging and comprehensive way. Easy to follow and complete with first-hand accounts, this is one of the best books written about WWII in Europe.

I am a history buff. Stephen Ambrose is an excellent writer. I have got and read several of them. This book is up to my high expectations.

Another extremely accurate and well researched account by Stephen Ambrose. Compiled and told largely through the eyes of the GIs who were actually on the ground and did the fighting.
