    1. 8/10 I only hesitate to give this the highest rating because I don't really identify it as a "book" but more of pictorial reference guide. It has maps of the landings and drops, maps of the advances inland, an order of battle reference, and battle details down to the battalion and sometimes company level. If that's what you're looking for, this is a 10 out of 10.
