Reviews - What do customers think about L'ENFER DE BREST (Album Historique)?

No French Required!  Dec 12, 2002
L'enfer de Brest (The Hell of Brest) tells the story of the seige of Brest which lasted about forty-nine days during August and September, 1944. While General Omar Bradley's 12th Army Group, partilarly Gen. George S. Patton's U.S. Third Army, were making spectacular gains driving eastward across France, the need for Brest as an additional deep-water port deminished. Neverheless, Bradley and Patton kept Maj. Gen. Troy H. Middleton's VIII Corps in Brittany with the mission to take Brest. The month long battle for Brest involved the most bloodiest combat encountered anywhere in Europe. The Fortress commander, Generalleutnant Herman B. Ramcke and his hodge-podge collection of defenders, centered around the 2d Fallchirmjager Division, put up a tough fight. Because it was fought hundreds of miles behind the Bradley's front, this battle has received scarce treatment by historians.Floch & Le Berre's book is written in French. This fact should not deter anyone interested in appreciating this little known battle. The author's research is impeccable. Hundreds of photos and some of the best maps I have yet encountered grace its pages. Created from the French perspecive, the authors highlight the role of the French Resistance working in conjuction with the Americans--a little known aspect of the Brittany Campaign.I hope an English translation of this work is forthcoming. Until then, look at the pictures & maps--they are surely worthy of its price tag.
