Andrew Roberts's acclaimed new history has been hailed as the finest single-volume account of this epic conflict. From the western front to North Africa, from the Baltic to the Far East, he tells the story of the war—the grand strategy and the individual experience, the brutality and the heroism—as never before.
Meticulously researched and masterfully written, The Storm of War illuminates the war's principal actors, revealing how their decisions shaped the course of the conflict. Along the way, Roberts presents tales of the many lesser-known individuals whose experiences form a panoply of the courage and self-sacrifice, as well as the depravity and cruelty, of the Second World War.
I highly recommend this book after reading a more generalized history.
Generally, when a book seems to have lots of details that are not commonly known, it is either very well or very poorly researched.
There is "no reason" to think that the Soviet Union would have been better prepared for a German invasion in '42 or '43.
The author brought many insights into major engagements of World War Two. There is a tremendous amount of information that had never been presented before. A very enjoyable read.Published 13 days ago by Michael Long
