Reviews - What do customers think about Omaha Beach: 6/6/1944?

Fantastic Visuals!  Sep 11, 2007
I purchased this book for one reason..the visuals. The book has fantastic photographs, super maps and illustrations. If you own a dozen books on Omaha Beach, you'll want this volume for the visuals alone.
Do Not Miss This One!  May 18, 2006
Outstanding! I want to point out at the start that I have read most of the sections of this book, not all of it. What I read was good, but the reason you really want this book is the graphics. The maps and photos are the best I have seen, and I own quite a few books on this campaign. I recently used it as a reference with "Omaha Beach: D-Day, June 6, 1944" by Joseph Balkoski. The combination of the two was a great way to find out about that fateful day.
A vivid visual look at a famous battle  Sep 9, 2004
Not long ago, I read and reviewed Joseph Balkoski's "Omaha Beach" and somewhat lamented the absence of really adequate maps to better show what had happened, linking the small unit actions with the bigger picture. I must say tha Georges Bernage's book is the perfect companion to Balkoski's, supplying highly vivid maps and photographs to amplify the words of Balkoski's narrative. And it certainly is not necessary to read Balkoski's book to find Bernage's much more visually-oriented work valuable in itself. A detailed picture of German tactical arrangements is presented along with equally detailed portrayals of individual American attacks bypassing and overcoming those defenses. And Bernage's text should not be ignored, as it contains some excellent first-hand account material.
Omaha Beach by George Bernage  Feb 2, 2004
I want to say that this is definately a keeper if you are interested in the hisory of D day. My father was on Omaha Beach and I feel it tells his story. Also tells of German side too. I seen some new photo's I have not seen in any other book I have. I am esp. fond of the book because it has the 467th AAA bunker memorial in it, before and after scenes, and that was my fathers battalion.
