"This is probably the best book ever written about Omaha Beach." - Bill Stone, Stone & Stone Second World War Books

"Balkoski's depiction of 'Bloody Omaha' is the literary accompaniment to the white-knuckle Omaha Beach scene that opens Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan." - John Hillen, New York Post
