    If you¿re ready to learn more about World War II, I¿ve got the perfect book for you. My book, The United States in World War II, by Christopher Collier, is a fantastic true account on World War II. Although it mainly focuses on the United States, it is still extremely interesting and informing. The category that this book would fall in would be history, because it is on a war in our past. Next I¿m going to give you a summary of what this entire book explains about, so read on. I didn¿t know it was possible to learn this much in one book! I was amazed by how many people died, over 25 million, mostly Russians. There were two men who knew that the United States needed to go to war, and stop Hitler (who was one of the main causes of the war). Those men were Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. Many historians believed that WWII was just a continuation of WWI. Some interesting effects of the war are that the atomic bomb was invented and intentionally dropped which killed 80,000 citizens of Japan instantly. The Japanese actually had a chance to end the war when the US offered to surrender but the Japanese accept it which infuriated the Americans enough to seek revenge. Believe it or not, there were actually some benefits from the war also. One is that it gave many people jobs which helped recover from the Great Depression. Another benefit is that the US learned not to keep all ships at one base from the Pearl Harbor attack. To find some strengths and weaknesses read on! There were many strengths in this book about WWII. One strength is that it really helped me to understand a lot about the depressing drama and sadness of the war. Also the book explained in great detail about particular roles of certain soldiers and generals. Such as when an American bomber came so close to a Japanese platform when he dropped his bomb he exploded himself up too. However, I think too much detail in other areas was a weakness because it made certain portions boring and does not really flow with the book, which happened here when it discussed which counties chose different governments. In my opinion, another weakness of this book was that it should have explained more about the Holocaust which was barely mentioned. My overall opinion on this book is that it is very interesting, but is a little too overly detailed for young readers. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes history or would like to learn more about the United States in World War II. That is what I think about my book, The United States in World War II.
