A great read
This ibook is interesting, informative, and engaging. Great work, Combat Studies Institute!
A Giant Leap
I read the PDF version earlier and then learned of the enhanced version. The collection is extremely well done - and the the enhanced version brings reading military history to a new level with fly through terrain, descriptive timelined maps, weapon descriptions and embedded photographs. Exceptionally well done!,
A fantastic read on the iPad - what a great download! The story is fascinating and draws the reader in. But the extras are what earns this five stars. From pop up maps, diagrams, audio interview, video and more, I felt like I was not merely given an interpretation of events but sharing in the background material underlying the story. These enhancements are wonderful, because they aim to provide information and not overwhelm the story with "flash". You can choose as much or as little as you want.
