1939 Countdown to War,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 1939: Countdown to War (Hardcover)
What is so dramatic about this book is that it recreates hour by hour the days before the outbreak of war on 1 September 1939. You feel very much part of the growing tensions where nothing was predictable or inevitable. Although only a short book (149 pages) it is jam-packed with interesting and relevant detail. It is written in a journalistic manner which comes across as "this is how it happened".
I would wholeheartedly recommend this book
