Editorial Reviews

"Zaloga covers the planning, the execution and the success of the raid very well. It is obvious that the author has gone to great lengths to research Pegasus Bridge, its importance during D-day, the planning and execution of the raid to capture the bridge and provides a very well written and accurate history of the raid. Anyone interested in D-day, British airborne troops and the raid to capture Pegasus Bridge will find this book very informative and interesting." -Randy Harvey, Model Shipwrights
