it was amazing
bookshelves: world-war-2

A brave book that attempts to undermine the western view of the European theater during world war 2. It's exciting to read and genius in the way that it uses the facts that most Americans are already familiar with to crush our way of thinking about it. Anyone, especially people who read a lot of this kind of shit could benefit from it's fresh analysis and bold questioning of conventions. At times it goes so far as to condemn the allies for their inhumane behavior in the course of the war. By the end of this book you will never be able to see the war as a good vs. evil struggle again. It can be seen as nothing but evil vs. evil.
