Book Recommendation-"Sarthe, août 1944 - Histoire d'une Libération"

hello Guys

I know this book has been mentioned before here a while ago but I would like to mention it again. The book is called Sarthe, août 1944 - Histoire d'une Libération and is by French author Fabrice Avoie. I have just recieved my copy and have to say I was very impressed.

The book is hard covered, in A4 size with over 450 pages (printed on good quality semi gloss paper) with 850 pictures, as well as 65 maps. The pictures show both allied and axis subject and are as various as they numerous. A few pictures are know but most come from personal collection of both former combatants (allied & german) as well as from civilians from the area. I can't comment on te text as it is in French (and I unfortunately can't read French) but it is vast, and I'm sure would reflect the same quality displayed by the other features I have already mentioned. This book has been presented and published with quality in mind and reflects the passion for the subject shown by Mr Avoie.

I have no connection with the authour or publishers, I am simply a very happy consumer. I have ony mentioned this book again as Mr Avoie has told me he is fast running out of stock of this book and if you want a ciopy it would be best to order sooner rather than latter to not risk missing it. 38 euros for this sort of book I feel is a bargin and I also can't fault the postal service. I asked for my book to be shipped by regular airmail (there are other option incuding tracking if you want but they are a bit more expensive) and had the book in 6 days of shipping, France to Australia! Can't argue with that.

Here is a link to Mr Avoie's site where you can purchase the book directly through him (what I did)
