Excellent overview of WWII

This book is an excellent overview of World War II from start to finish. It often seems like a whirlwind tour, and topics change rapidly. But I guess that’s what has to happen when you condense WWII in to 8 hours. Good narration. Politically neutral, factually and event based. Recommended!
