This is an amazing book and a look back at the people who lived in a world where your word was good, a handshake meant something and morals were high. It is also a wonderful book about the heroes that kept people safe in a disturbing time. As always the Time-life company gives readers a well written beautiful book.

The visual aids were of course amazing, but this book surprised me in many ways. I have read many books on the subject and I thought this book would reiterate what I had learned. But it truly surprised me with many in depth explanations and touched into theaters that were overlooked by other novels. I also loved the interviews and first hand accounts blended on to the book to make it glide smoothly. I also found the quotes to be an extremly nice touch also. But there was some reiteration of past ...more

I thought the book was a great book, I would give it 5 stars. Since I am a history geek this book was fantastic for me, the book informed on Nazi Germany And WW2, The USA's big role in the war and what happened to the people of Germany. The book mainly focuses on the U.S and the the role that they played in the war "Go home..... or return to your jobs!"(pg 127). The authr directly tells the reader of the events that took place in WW2 and how the U.S allied to stop them. The purpose of this book ...more
