Publisher's 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.

    An extremely well written history of all of the war. This was not a history of selected parts of the conflict, but a history of the complete war.

    World War II is the area of history that I study the most, and this book is its best description that I have ever seen. The detail is incredible and for the first time I was given a truly complete, unbiased picture of the war.

    "Significant Information "
    Any additional comments?

    This book is loaded with information. The battles and the men and women who endured. It is a little difficult to read because of the amount of information that it contains. You may know the history...but there are details in this book you can probably never imagine. Well worth the time.

    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps never before have I learned so much about one event in any book I have ever encountered. The author gives day by day results of the war with stories here and there along with some background political information. It is detailed, but not overwhelming. I recommend this book to anyone interested in WWII.

    "A Great Book "
    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book. I love the chronology that is written. There are also little stories/sentences interjected into the timeline. The only thing I can criticize are the vast amount of foreign names and places but that is the fault of my ignorance and not the authors. Lots of events which I did not know occurred, help make this fresh to me.

    "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.

    This is a beautiful book. I am also thrilled that my father's and my uncle's photos were included in the front and back covers. This book is a fine tribute to the men and women who fought and died during WWII.

    "Great Reference "

    This is an excellent reference book on WW2. Having been raised in the military as well as serving in the military I have studied WW2 for over 40 years. This appears to be an accurate portrayal of that time in our history. I wanted an accurate reference book to give to my grandchildren in light of the attempts to rewrite our history. This is a great reference book for them.
