Just bought this with the intention of it being part of my "holiday reading" in a few weeks time. Couldn't resist a peek at the chapters covering my specific interest - wish I hadn't bothered now...at just a glance, I noticed facts at total odds with primary sources, the occasional "strange" reference, units placed in the wrong places at the wrong times, over-simplification of events and glaring omissions of unit actions and movements leading to a slightly disjointed picture of events. (Also, it has the "rather run of the mill" maps which I find a little boring now - the same ones (albeit with minor differences) appear again and again in other publications. None have enough detail!) What worries me is that, if such events occur in the chapter that I do know quite a bit about, how do I take the chapters where my knowledge is lesser? Anyone else read it, and what did you think? dave.
