5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Read, 16 Aug 2009
This review is from: The Storm of War: A New History of the Second World War (Hardcover)
"The Storm of War" is just superb as a one volume overview of World War Two. Because it is a one volume book, Roberts must necessarily pick and choose what he focuses on. That said, the writing is crisp and clear, and the details and quotes that he does provide are chosen extremely well. I lost track long ago of how many books I have read on World War Two, but I found myself being fascinated by this book and learning a lot from it. The main thing about this book is that it is just so damn fun to read. I haven't had this much fun reading a book since I read Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" series almost forty years ago. Based on the quality of this book, I will seriously consider buying all the other books Roberts has written. "The Storm of War" is just that good.

Well said and couldn't agree more. I'm only two chapters in and am already dreading coming to the end of its 700 pages. Astutely researched, superbly written and utterly engrossing.
