Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A one-volume retelling of World War II may seem a dubious proposition, but this veteran writer of popular history has done an outstanding job. Wisely beginning with Versailles, he uses a topical approach to illuminate his vast canvas. There is more storytelling than serious analysis here, but the wartime drama is related with deftness and enticing detail. His portrayal of personalities is excellent. This work is more mature than the author's vaguely unsatisfying Wars of America (1968). He does for World War II what John Costello did for The Pacific War (LJ 12/1/81). Recommended for public libraries. Raymond L. Puffer, U.S. Air Force History Prog., Los Angeles

    EXCELLENT!!!!

    This is absolutely the best book I have ever read on World War II. Leckie manages to give insightful and detailed information on the battles, the strategic challenges, and what transpired in the Oval office while showing in great detail the thoughts and struggles of the common foot soldier. So very well written there were times I thought I was reading an exciting work of fiction. Robert Leckie is the best writer of our time.

    The Only WWII book worthy of your time

    This huge book of WWII s very long, but very manageable. It comes in a very readable form carefully describing the people who took place in the war and the events that happened and who decided it would happen. A excellent book.
