What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Novices will receive a painless introduction, but educated readers should not pass up the highly opinionated prologue and epilogue and the author's trademark acerbic commentary throughout." —-Kirkus

I bought this book for my 13 year old granddaughter to introduce her to this time in history. It's an easy read. He's a bit English centered and weak on the Battle of the Atlantic, but good overall. If you have someone who wonders what Pearl Harbor is, this is the book to start them off on.
