Prepositions Matter
Jay Yamada | San Francisco, California | 05/15/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Prepositions matter.

I was looking for a Battlefield show from the first series on the Battle OF Normandy.

This show is from the second series of Battlefield and is called the Battle FOR Normandy. If you actually look at the show, it's got the sub-title, "The Battle for Caen".

Never quite understood the issues and problems the British faced in their push for Caen on the eastern side of the Normandy beachhead. This covers Monty's challenges quite well However, if you're looking for things in the American sector, this DVD doesn't cover it.

Also, this DVD does not seem to work in older DVD players but works fine on my late model Macintosh computer."
