The Eban Emael assault was spectacular and one of my favorite 1940 actions. I really look forward to this book.

Thanks for the tip. Bought the Kindle version, went through it during the afternoon. Good book with lots of insides on the fortress and the assault. Liked the comments from persons that where there.

The Kindle (actually: Kindle Reader on a Win8 tablet) version is mostly readable. Some of the color tables require a switch to "landscape" mode (Wider than high) and being "double paged" are so-so. Typical Kindle problem. Still it is clear that the publisher did more than simply "Kindlefy" the manuscript.

Recommended both for the content and the presentation.
