I received a copy of this book from the publisher in expectation of a fair review I have read three of Alex Kershaw s books prior to this one and enjoyed every one The First Wave stands up nicely with his previous works Kershaw brings us the stories of the individual participants before during and after D Day Mostly the Allied side of the day is told but there are a few Germans and Poles Russians forced to fight stories as well Pointe du Hoc Pegasus Bridge and other well known events are covered but so are some other less well known stories You will meet some great characters in the air ground and sea combat arenas New stories and information on what you think happened The book reads fast and don t skip the notes in the back some good information there too Some apparent typos on various weapon characteristics did not take anything away from the book Overall highly recommended 4 Stars
