5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Clive Harlow on 10 April 2011
Format: Hardcover
I started reading Churchill's 6 volumes on the war, and realised soon after starting volume one that I hadn't a clue where Narvik was. I found it in my old school atlas, but it was difficult to work out why on earth it was so important, and rather laborious to follow the action. So I bought this atlas, and not only does it clearly show all the campaigns I'm reading about, but also has concise textual summaries of each of the campaigns (and a few photos too). The maps show the opposing forces, movements and battles quite clearly. My only reservation is that many of the maps abandon the 'north-up' convention and instead show an 'advancing forces perspective'. For example, the Malaya invasion maps are all 'upside-down'. But overall, an excellent and invaluable atlas.

This is a very very superb product. Just about every map you will ever need, with a concise description of every major event of ww2 that can be explained with a map. Includes unit dispositions with clinical captions and an overview. A real must have for anyone interested in this period. If you only own one book on WW2 then this should be it.

Very useful one might even say vital if you are reading the works by Anthony Beevor or Max Hastings et al.

A good companion to other books on the war, but the orientation of the maps on the pages can be confusing sometimes. I would not be without it though.
