It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words and during WWIII millions upon millions of photographs were taken of the fighting on all fronts. Even during the Normandy Campaign of 1944, the fighting was covered by hundreds of photographers. From these illustrations, the author has managed to tease out images to show the fighting around Caen as seen from all sides, including British, Canadian and German. The result is a fascinating insight, rarely before seen. Some are familiar images, but mostly they are new and with the addition of explanatory captions to identify people, units and locations, the author has completed a masterly work. The aerial photographs of the battlefield can lead to a particularly absorbing exercise, as readers match them up with modern touring maps. A brilliant way of comparing places then and now and put the reader in the right place.
