His accomplishment is monumental: the Liberation Trilogy is the most vividly told, brilliantly researched World War II narrative to date.

I have just begun to read the first book. It is very interesting and I am learning many facts that I have never read about before. I have been reading about the Second World War for years and I am learning more about is on every page.

I have read several books on the history of WW II and this trilogy is clearly the best. Very well written, incredibly well documented and thorough. Atkinson uses letters, military reports, and many other documents to tell this story. It reads like a novel, a real page turner. Each volume grabs you and it is very hard to put it down. Well worth reading.

I have all three books in this trilogy set.   I have read a LOT of WWI and WWII history books,  This is by far the best written, researched and entertaining book on the subject  of war.  I will definitely re-read  at some point.  Just pure enjoyment to read.

I volunteer with a Honor Flight hub in middle America. In Guns at Last Light are many of the experiences of the men and women whose comrades in arms we are privileged to transport to Washington DC to see the World War II memorial. I am humbled to be in their presence and through Rick's words, understand the pain and anguish they have largely kept to themselves for decades. The true heroes don't count their medals in public. It's a masterful work.

Welldone, thoughtful retelling of a time that we should never forget. A debt is owed to all those who gave of their heart and soul, and many their very lives.
