5.0 out of 5 stars The Second World War, 3 Oct 2012
This is an exceptional book. I lived through the Second World War and remember much of what we experienced and what was on the BBC news but this book fills in the gaps in a very complete and readable way. Antony Beevor has a gift for taking dry facts and bringing them to life with anecdotes and quotations which are relevant, accurate and helpful. It's a big book - 783 pages - but the story unfolds in such a vivid way that I just kept on reading. For anyone interested in this period of history, this is a must.
