Overview

The appearance of Sir Basil Liddell Hart's last book, History of the Second World War, was shadowed only by the knowledge that he did not live to see its publication. At the time of his death he was working on the proofs of this great work, which he had patiently built over the course of twenty-two years. It is without a doubt the finest single-volume history of World War II ever written.

This is a brilliant work. Unlike every other history of WW2, it does not just state facts but rether offers brilliant explanation and analysis. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent book that is quite an authority on World War II. A considerable amount of honesty is included in the analysis of the war as well as excellent technical research. A must have book for the historian interested in 20th century history and war history.

This was thoroughly disappointing since I was immensely entertained by The Rommel Papers. Reading this was a total chore, regardless of the insights larded through the book. The book has bloated coverage of Northern Africa. The authors totally gloss over Britains bailing out and abandonment of the French and Belgian Armies and turn Dunkirk into the major focus of the entire chapter on the fall of France. Apparently John Keegan is the only British author with a one volume history that isn't infected with the British Apologist bug.
