Beyond the few interesting trivia (largely America-centric), this book really offers little to anyone who has read a little about World War II history. The book has a disproportionate focus on the US perspective, with coverage on other significant aspects of World War II being seemingly token, or just the bare minimum to warrant the title. Maybe the title sgould be "What They Didn't Teach You About the US anorld War II". Another minor point is the arbitrary use of section dividers, some of them ...more
I like it a lot so far. In so much, that I actually want to own a copy (I rent from the library). Its got interesting tidbits and World War II is already interesting to me. Makes me want to know even more about the war.
And I like how its divided up so easily and clearly with interesting topics for each chapter. Its got its own chapters just for airplanes and another just for submarines--how cool!
I love reading history books. Found this series by Mike Wright to be very thought provoking. I never knew about most of this from high school history classes. Very interesting stuff, I think his "What they didn't teach you about..." series should be in history classes.
Riveting! See the War through the eyes of a GI and you will not look at history the same.
