Summary

The Second World War was one of the most traumatic events in human history. Across the world, existing conflicts became connected, entangling nations in a vast web of violence. It was fought on land, sea, and air, touching every inhabited continent. Over 55 million people died, some of them combatants, some civilians caught up in the violence, and some murdered by their own governments. It was the war that unleashed the Holocaust and the atomic bomb upon the world. But it was also a war that featured acts of courage and self-sacrifice on every side.

Exactly What I Want

Any additional comments?

The author obviously made the decision to give to a detailed factual account, an almost daily blow by blow chronicle, opposed to a more interpretive analysis and he has succeeded as far as one can succeed with this one dimensional story telling.

Definitley Good

Any additional comments?

This book is a complete anthology of WWII. The author looks at every theater of the war. He gives a chronological look at each and relates what was happening in each at theater. He also includes the names of many regular people and how the action around them affected them and their lives.

Too superficial

Too superficial, captivating only if you never heard anything about WWII.
Narrator breaks up mid sentence, sniffles and has random background noise that sounds like beats against mic. Needs serious editing.

Hats Off

No one can describe the World War 2 as this author has done it. It is a complete guide for all. I recommend it.
