A very good if you are any kind of a history buff. I gave read and studied countless books about this era, but this down to earth chronology of WWI is only only book I have read that does and excellent job of outlining the war and its major campaigns in a tidy and concise manor.
Super quick read, but a real must for those that are students of the this critical time in our history.
As for the rest, a good choice would me People Magazine.

Excellent overview of the causes, events, and conclusion of WWII. I read it to get the big picture into which I could place future reading about specific events and phases of the war. The writing is a bit sloppy at times and a bit too casual but not to distraction. There is also a fair amount of repetition as it is also designed to be read in bits and pieces as well as from beginning to end.

This is a fine review of WWII. I just finished teaching the Unit on WWII so I read it as a quick review. It's a simple telling of WWII but if you already have foundational knowledge on the topic it will stimulate all of the details that have learnt but thought you forgot.

Surprisingly good general overview of WWI. Good read for someone that doesn't know much about WWI or good review for future, more in-depth reading on the subject.
