Leo Marriott is a retired Air Traffic Controller who has had more than thirty books published on his specialist subjects: naval warfare and aviation. He is an experienced pilot and accomplished aerial photographer, as his work in this book shows! Simon Forty has been working in publishing as editor and author for 35 years and edited Leo's first book, on Royal Naval Frigates in time for the Falklands War-and a subsequent sellout. He has cycled and toured the Normandy battlefields on many occasions.
A lot of work went into this book and the result is deceptively easy on the eye and brain but the effort to produce a book of this quality and complexity is not to be underestimated. Messrs Marriott and Forty somehow manage to make a book as complicated as this really simple. You have to admire them for it. Highly recommended. * War History Online 10/06/2015 * The book not only tells the story but will also be a boon for anyone planning a visit to the various battlefield sites in North West Europe and it is a book that would be very hand to keep in the car with you while you are travelling, so an ideal travelling companion. * Military Model Scene 05/04/2015 *
