's review

it was amazing

In this fantastically in-depth and detailed historical account, author John Kelly gives reader's the background to the infamous actions and stories that are more commonly told. I was impressed by this book. It is easy to read and interesting and reveals details about Roosevelt and Churchill's relationships with Stalin that you do not see in most popular history books about the era.

This book is long enough to make a good weekend reading project but isn't bogged down by unnecessary details. There are enough moments of levity, thanks to the author, to make the serious matter of this book more enjoyable than one expects. This would be a good choice for history students embarking upon their quest to understand the micro-relations between the world powers of WWII.

Overall, I found that this book was both educational and entertaining and I would certainly recommend it to other readers.

This review is based on a complimentary copy from the publisher, provided through Netgalley. All opinions are my own.
