Robert Doughty's "The Breaking Point: Sedan and the Fall of France 1940"

Post by historygeek2021 » 22 Dec 2021 07:11

I strongly recommend this book for those interested in a detailed history of the German crossing at Sedan. It is by far the most detailed account of the battle I have seen to date (the second most detailed being Karl-Heinz Frieser's "Blitzkrieg Legend"). Unlike most authors, Doughty describes the battle from the perspective of both the French and Germans. His account is extremely granular, going down to the company level, but well worth it for those who want a deeper understanding of the battle.

Both books are available on Scribd:
