Mark R. Polelle of the University of Findlay examines the origins, major events, and consequences of the Second World War. Taking into account the First World War’s effect on politics, economics, culture, and the international system as a whole, the course illustrates the ideologies at play as communism, fascism, and democratic capitalism came into direct conflict. Throughout these lectures, Polelle also imagines a number of "what ifs," including what would have happened if Hitler had not invaded the Soviet Union, and concludes with a consideration of the legacy of World War II.

I have a hard time reading/listening to true fiction books. I think this is because my main reason for reading is to learn and not necessarily just for enjoyment, although I do read many historical fiction books. Favorites history/biography books and science/tech info books.
Great political overview of the war. You will likely learn A few new reasons as to why the war went the way it did.
"Good overview of WW2"
This series of lectures is well presented, and although it is shorter than some of the courses and books available on audible, it covers quite a lot of ground.
