Reviews

"Earns its place in a crowded field by bringing a completely fresh, very human approach to the largest amphibious landing in history, telling stories from the American, British, French and German perspectives. It has a wonderful immediacy and vitality--living history in every sense." --Anthony Horowitz, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Alex Rider Adventure series, in the Wall Street Journal "The day is narrated in a symphony of surviving voices - a teenage Allied conscript, a French resistance fighter, a butcher's daughter - placing the reader in the heat of the action." --USA Today"A labor of love and respect . . . Milton's writing is often vivid . . . Readers will . . . be thrilled and moved by this sweeping mosaic." --Publishers Weekly "Vivid, graphic and moving." --Mail on Sunday Book of the Year "Stirring and unsettling in equal measure, this is history writing at its most powerful." --Evening Standard

Praise for Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare

"Milton is a meticulous researcher and masterful storyteller. Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, with its ghastly details and dollops of droll British humor, will reward readers who appreciate military history and good writing."--USA Today (3.5 star out of 4)"A rousing historical romp." --The New York Times Book Review"Milton has a rare ability--a talent for sifting fine pearls from faraway sands and transmuting the merely arcane into little literary gems." --Simon Winchester, Boston Globe "A rousing account-and celebration-of World War II's most insidious and devious heroes."--The Wall Street Journal

"An exciting, suspenseful tale of international intrigue."--Kirkus

"Impressive . . . [an] entertaining history of spectacular, often nasty derring-do by real-life secret agents." --Publishers Weekly "Giles Milton's research is impeccable and his narrative reads in part like a modern-day Robert Louis Stevenson novel." --The Times (London) "Deftly and arrestingly captures the sorry history of the European lust for nutmeg and its devastating impact on the Spice Islands....Milton is a storyteller of the first rank." --Kirkus Reviews
