The Breaking Point: Sedan and the Fall of France, 1940
In telling the story of Sedan, Doughty brings to life individual soldiers, ridge lines, copses, gun emplacements, charges and bug-outs -- all the detail that creates layer and layer of opportunity or obstacle for victory or defeat. The result is an authentic grasp not only of a key battle in a crucial campaign, but of what really happens on the fields of wartime strife.
