it was amazing

This is the best book on WW2 out there. It clearly explains the war in terms of economic and political forces, without getting lost--as so many current books do--in the military details. I would strongly recommend this book (and vols 2 & 3) to anyone who wants to understand the motives of the Nazis and the French collaborators.

Clearly, when it came out this book was an embarrassment to the State Department as it shows how, over and over again, they misjudged the politics of the war.
