Instead of putting himself out there, Hastings focuses on synthesizing the first-person perspectives of ordinary people during the war. While valuable, a lot of historians do that sort of thing, and I find such work most interesting when applied to specific themes or discrete episodes, and not huge, expansive topics like the entire Second World War.
So here is my warning: if you are thinking "I like other stuff by Max Hastings, so I want to see what he has to say about the Second World War," then don't buy this book. You'll come away disappointed just like I did, because except for his name on the cover, it's actually rather hard to tell that he wrote this book.
