Would you consider the audio edition of D-Day to be better than the print version?
The main hurdle of the audio edition is that you (or, at least, I) need to get a hold of a map to follow the often very detailed movements of troops.
What other book might you compare D-Day to and why?
This is a great supplement to Beevor's book on The Second World War.
What does Cameron Stewart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Cameron Stewart is a great narrator. The one thing I personally dislike is the "fake accents" he does when quoting sources, but I suppose that is down to personal taste.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
When the narrator consistently called the Leibstandarte SS for the Liebstandarte (Lieb means love in German).
Any additional comments?
A great and compelling story. Highly recommendable.
Anthony Beevor is a leading military historian whose works on Stalingrad and Berlin are excellent.
This is a detailed account not just of D Day but of the campaign in France until the liberation of Paris.However, at times it lacks analysis.
The narration was spoiled by the narrator's use of accents which were not merely unnecessary but unintentionally comical at times, which detracted from the serious nature of the subject matter
