    Great review of WW2

    A great book if you want to get a one-volume run-down of the major events of the Second World War. Keegan does a great job of moving throughout the wars many fronts and working very hard to give each area of the war its due. Given the constraints of space he doesn't go too far in depth in any area and you shouldn't expect him to. Getting all that happened in WW2 into one book can only happen if the goal is just the basics. I strongly recommend this to anyone (like myself) who wants to kick off their WW2 education with a narrative of the major points and will follow-up with more in depth books on those major events.

    second world war comes alive

    One of the best living historians! A much more comprehensive and balanced account of the conflict that the 'popular' history of stepehen ambrose who seems to lift from other writers and gives a slanted perspective.

    Keegan is overrated

    His eminence, earned by other works notwithstanding, in this book Keegan has mixed up Chuikov (Commander, Soviet 62nd Army, the defenders of Stalingrad) with Zhukov (STAVKA representative to Operation Uranus at Stalingrad). This is a bit like mixing up 'Stonewall' Jackson with Robert E. Lee, or Alexander with Montgomery. Painful.
