Before you listen to this audiobook, spend 15 minutes and print out a few maps of France, Belgium, Holland, and Germany. THEN sit down and listen to this book. Great listen for the history buff. Highly recommended.

An excellent, lively book narrated by the best narrator Audible has!
What more do you want? The drawbacks of Charbis tanks, Rommel's blasting away a hole in the Maginot line and driving his tanks through by firing at both flanks non-stop.
The bravery of British betrayed by the French surrender, and the shock of the British ambush that forced Hitler to avoid attacking Dunkirk.
As the author says: For want of a nail, the ship was lost. If Hitler had listened to his Generals and let them loose on Dunkirk instead of depending on Goering, the history would be different and we would all be typing this out in German.
I play the Company of Heroes RTG, and I have learnt a lot of how to utilize the strategies outlined here.
The book would have been spoiled if not for Ray Porter. He brings out the urgency, the panache, the chutzpah and the anger well.
May he live long and prosper.
