Publisher's Summary

Even after the legendary evacuation from Dunkirk in June 1940 there were still large British formations fighting the Germans alongside their French allies. After mounting a vigorous counterattack at Abbeville and then engaging a tough defense along the Somme, the British were forced to conduct a second evacuation from the ports of Le Havre, Cherbourg, Brest, and St. Nazaire.

While France was in its death throes, politicians and soldiers debated what to do - flee to England or North Africa, to seek an armistice. Case Red captures the drama of the final three weeks of military operations in France in June 1940, and explains the great impact it had on the course of relations between Britain and France during the remainder of the war. It also addresses the military, political, and human drama of France's collapse in June 1940, and how the windfall of captured military equipment, fuel, and industrial resources enhanced the Third Reich's ability to attack its next foe - the Soviet Union.

    "Outstanding "

    This book is excellent in describing some of the factors tat occurred before the start of World War II that weakened both the French and British as opposed to Germany.
    It is also excellent in its discussion of military actions in France AFTER Dunkirk until the surrender of France weeks later.
    The perspective of the author is more from the French than the British which is definitely not the standard post-War narrative.
    Strongly recommend this title for WWI buffs.

    "Not Forczyk's best offering"

    Robert Forczyk is my favorite WWII author. I listened to "Where the Iron Crosses Grow" probably a dozen times, each time picking up additional details. I thoroughly enjoyed "We March Against England." His thorough detail and keen analyses are unsurpassed. But this book simply did not translate well into audio. There were so many acronyms that it ended up sounding like, "The DCM of the 5th AMR took the full brunt of the 7th ICR." Perhaps if I had an acronym dictionary in front of me when I read the book, I might have enjoyed it, but listening to the audio book simply doesn't work.

    "Great concept, execution was poor"

    The book is overly detailed. He should have focused on telling the story and less on trivial details, with which the reader is inundated.
