5.0 out of 5 stars perfect book for what i needed, 19 Nov 2010
This review is from: The Second World War (Paperback)
I finished this last night, and have logged onto Amazon to buy the first world war equivalent.I was looking for a comprehensive yet broad account of WW2 and this didn't disappoint. Quite simply this was exactly was i was looking for - rich with the details of the war in terms of the appalling numbers of troops/money/victims and salient facts about the mechanics of military mobilisation together with enough anecdotal points about several individuals. I was really impressed by the relative neutrality of the prose, at no stage did i feel the author was trying to judge any party particularly and just to present the facts together with a feel of the everyday horror of the conflict. An ideal read for anyone who wants to get a wide yet also sympathetic to indivudal history of this terrible event and if you are already well versed in the subject then a great tool for reference.
