"... this book brings the participants and their equipment to life in vivid color. a boon for the historian and modeler alike... For the military modeler, this information is a godsend... For a single reference on what the soldiers were wearing and using in 1944, you could not ask for a better book than this. The high quality of photos, coupled with the excellent descriptions, puts this into the must-have category for armor and figure modelers."

Wow! How did Mr. Bertin manage to get so much into a compact 128 pages? ...I was overwhelmed by the vast amount of visual information contained within. Everything is printed in full color on heavy, glossy paper and the entire layout provides an appealing presentation...shows minute detail that may be over-looked by even the most meticulous among us. D-Day Normandy is a "must have" and an awesome reference book that addresses its subject as completely as I've ever seen!
