The World War II: The Definitive Visual History, is one of the most complex, yet teemingly colorful and beautiful World War II battle collections that I have ever read. From the Treaty of Versailles to the beginning of the Cold War, it is blooming with brilliant, yet concise descriptions of life on the war front, life on the home front, and increasingly more than I saw in any World War II collection. There are major profiles and biographies on dictators such as Adolf Hitler, those who inspired to fight such as Winston Churchill, and brilliant generals and war commanders such as Dwight David Eisenhower. Even yet, a more precise descriptions on major campaigns such as Operation Barbarossa (by major battles such as the Siege of Leningrad and Operation Typhoon) and names all the major generals of the battle. There are flaws, such as I wish that they named the number of casualties of both sides on the battle, listing every general during the battle, and maps on every battle. I recommend this book to anyone who is studying World War II, war historians who need a refresher, and anyone who is studying the campaigns on one of the most discussed topics in the history of the human race. - DJT
