Clark's analysis pushes past the normal quick, easy conclusions about the France 1940 campaign and develops a nuanced view of the downfall of a great power. The analysis was punctuated by accounts from the time that underscored the leaders views as events unfolded. Overall, very good read.
There are countless of books in the American English book market about the three days of the Battle of Gettysburg (and I have read many), but I have been searching for years to find a good detailed book about the Fall of France during WW2 - which consisted of over a month of continuous fighting.
Almost all books that cover the Fall of France are written from the British point of view and basically just cover the evacuation of Dunkirk as if that is the only consequential event - and leave many questions such as how did the allies lose when they had superior equipment.
Fortunately, this book did cover the military operations in the deep detail that I have been looking for all these years. I finally have a much better understanding of what actually happened during this battle. As such, I am giving this book 5 stars - not saying that there aren't better books on this subject, but I haven't found them yet.
