    One thought on “The Struggle for Europe”

    1. A brilliant book that sparked my lifetime s interest in the history of the Second World War I was probably fifteen when I read it first published in 1952 and I was thrilled by how exciting history could be The title is a little misleading, since it is only concerned with the preparations for D Day and the progress of the war in Western Europe up to the German surrender, but my goodness, this is how history should be written One of my all time favourites.

    2. More than 60 years ago war correspondent Chester Wilmot wrote this, a book still regarded as among the best one volume treatments of this horrendous conflict There are certainly details that are passed over quickly but this is an excellent starting point from which to grasp the origins and ultimate outcome of World War Two Recommended.

    3. Trying to describe WWII in one volume is like trying to pack 10 pounds of substance into a five pound bag Chester Wilmot pulls it off, surprisingly offering a comprehensive examination of WWII in Europe less than 10 years after the conflict ended American readers may find Wilmot s analysis off putting, given its anglo centric focus To gain a good understanding of the war, one cannot limit reading to just those books with an American viewpoint The war would be a struggle for the allies to develop [...]

    4. A reliable, balanced and comprehensive history of Allied military activities in North Europe from D day to VE Day, Wilmot s engaging and readable account benefits from first person access to a wide variety of significant actors in near real time to the events he narrates Notably Wilmot takes on the sometime role of public defender for Montgomery s reputation and makes a credible argument for the Field Marshal s claim to a share of the Normandy breakout victory rather than approbation for heavy l [...]

    5. A full story of the second world war in Europe from before the start to after the end Detailing all the events and strategies as they seemed at the time as well as with how they appeared shortly after the war I won t spoil the ending for anyone who hasn t read it though.

    6. One of the best books I have ever read, Its narration of military history is perfect It is both intriguing as well as entertaining It is forthright and well researched It is in a league of one.

    7. Probably the grand daddy of all such books that followed Wilmott s maps are first class His conclusions are sound The narrative is also a breeze compared with Bradley, Eisenhower, Montgomery et al His analysis of Eisenhower s broad front cf Montgomery s thrust is interesting Wilmott doesn t go as far as Broke goes in calling Montgomery out but to my mind he comes down against Eisenhower Post B of B we are over run by small unit books I was glad to have read Wilmott first and some years prior to [...]

    8. A detailed account of the European theater during World War II, starting with the allied preparations for D Day, subsequent invasion of Normandy, and major battles strategies of the rest of the war.
