Fascinating historical account, but the mispronunciations of German terms and names was at times distracting.
Richard J Evan's "The Third Reich at War"
Some interesting bits here and there scattered amongst a lot of boring, repetive flotsam
Anyone who really really really REALLY likes hearing about sea battles
Great for putting you to sleep
While billed as an overview of WWII it focuses mainly on Europe, particularly the Nazis. There is a discussion of Japan at the end. He examines the moral attitudes of the countries involved, not just the political and military leadership, but entire societies, and how these attitudes bent and broke (on both sides) under the weight of total war.Fascinating.
Be aware, Benjamin Wiker is a fundamentalist christian from the Discovery Institute. The summary of his book: All evils are due to Atheists, if someone does evil and claims to be a christian, he is only pretending and is really an atheist, not matter how pious he acts. All the world's problems will be solved if we simply return to fundamentalist christian (and _only_ christian) fantasies. Bring back the Inquisition.
Now you don't have to buy the book.
