Readable if not terribly well written revision of the accepted views on the strategies of the Second World War in Europe. Mosier brings forth more than a few facts which have been long glossed over by accounts previously written. For students of this particular point in time I would have to say it is a must read if not for the conclusions, then more for the factual counterpoints he lays out.
Personally, I have long been skeptical about the myths of German Armour and it's invincibility in the early stages of the war. The accepted views of that and their airpower have never quite jibed with what I have read and heard from veterans. Here Mosier puts some numbers and facts down that lay fertile ground for his theories on battles later on in the war. There is no doubt that this is a valuable analysis if for no other reason than it will have one re evaluating and appraising events from a more critical standpoint.
