Book Twenty Three

Book Twenty Three 2014: 

 The Second World War by Antony Beevor

13528287

Does what it says on the tin. It’s an extensive and exhaustive history of not just 1939 to 1945 but the events preceding it in Asia and elsewhere. If I have one small criticism it’s that there are times when the maps peppered throughout the book aren’t detailed or frequent enough, other then that it’s terrific.

I’m keeping this short as you’ll know immediately whether or not this is for you by the size and the subject 🙂

The one irony? I had to read it in 2 sections as my brain got so top-heavy with information – I ground to a halt just before Stalingrad. Not making that up…
