Comprehensive & very readable,
This review is from: The Second World War (Paperback)
Comprehensive in scope, if not detail, and very readable. Great narrative energy. Necessarily for a one-volume history of WW2, some battles are dealt with abruptly, so any serious student of the war may be disappointed. But for an overview of 6 years of intensive war, crammed into 600 pages, it is an admirable work.
