Format: Hardcover
The most comprehensive book on the Second World War that I have ever read, and most likely ever will. This is a must have for any serious student's library. The sheer depth and coverage of all the war's major battles and powers is staggering, and presents it all in a clear, concise and encyclopedic format. Without a doubt one of the best of its kind

A great book, so well organised that you can find out what you need to know within a few minutes and more reliable than instant look-up on Wikipedia. Delivered in good condition and speedily - excellent service.

Extremely informative and helpful, I particularly like the way in which the titles of other, related articles are indicated, so you can run between them.
