really liked it

This book reminded me of my anthropology minor in college. I love diving deep into cultural histories, and this was better than I imagined. It covers a huge swath of time as well as many countries an cultures. There was a clear lens of World War II looming over the whole book, but it was still far more comprehensive than I originally assumed it would be. I learned a lot of context that was not taught in schools, the cultural norms of the times that give texture to the events of history, and even challenge our assumptions.

My only complaint is that it stopped and there has not been a follow up volume.
