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.
Don Stanton
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.
I Like the for Dummies books,and I was looking for more info on WW2. Seemed like a good match.
I good simple breakdown of the events leading up to, during and conclusion of WWII.
One of the subjetiviest books that i ever read, writen by an american military lover.
