Robert Forczyk is my favorite WWII author. I listened to "Where the Iron Crosses Grow" probably a dozen times, each time picking up additional details. I thoroughly enjoyed "We March Against England." His thorough detail and keen analyses are unsurpassed. But this book simply did not translate well into audio. There were so many acronyms that it ended up sounding like, "The DCM of the 5th AMR took the full brunt of the 7th ICR." Perhaps if I had an acronym dictionary in front of me when I read the book, I might have enjoyed it, but listening to the audio book simply doesn't work.

This book is excellent in describing some of the factors tat occurred before the start of World War II that weakened both the French and British as opposed to Germany.
It is also excellent in its discussion of military actions in France AFTER Dunkirk until the surrender of France weeks later.
The perspective of the author is more from the French than the British which is definitely not the standard post-War narrative.
Strongly recommend this title for WWI buffs.
