Tells the story of 22 days chronologically across all theaters. Interesting structure, but hard to keep straight what's happening in each battle if you have to put the book down for a while. A different way to tell the story but I'm not sure I agree that the war was decided by December 8, 1941, and I expect any Americans that fought in the Pacific theater would agree with me on that.
Based on the premise that 22 days in late 1941 decided the war. Fascinating stuff! Well written day by day accounts of what was going on around the world for those days. Highly recommended for those interested in the Second World War.
