This provided a very detailed look at World War 2, and helped me complete a research paper on D-Day.

Recommends it for: military history buffs
Lots of detail on World War II. Lots more covered than you ever learned in school. Read it if you can put in the time to concentrate. I love this stuff so it was very interesting for me.
