Half way through (just starting WWII) and I'm impressed by how informative it is, despite the jokey style, the content does not dodge the unwholesome facts and conditions. Mooched for a BookMooch friend.
I felt that the first world war was dealt with a little better than the second world war. There was no detail of the horror and injury caused by the atomic bombs dropped on Japan, for instance, it really seemed specifically concerned with the European arena and glossed over the reality of the war in the Pacific.
