May be Ambrose's best book; nearly as good as the tv series (which says something about Ambrose as an author); gave new insight to me on WWII.

Provided some amazing numbers to me about the air war in WWII, but this seemed like Ambrose just stuck together paragraphs and chapters written by his research assistants.

I normally like Stephen Ambrose, but he is very long-winded at times when I don't think it's necessary. I think that I should have just stuck with the mini-series with this one.

I wanted to like it but there were parts where Ambrose seemed too fanatical about Eisenhower.
