"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Some reviewers have complained about certain factual anomalies but my response would be that this is a FICTIONAL NOVEL, not a true historical rendition of the latter days of World War Two. As such, it is a real page turner, and I particularly loved to hate the disfigured and twisted. 'Captain Skullface' a villain of the highest order. A great read from start to finish.
For fans of World War II and action thrillers, this is a great book.
The pace moves quickly during the war scenes, which can be quite graphic at times, but Dizon always paints a good picture of the difficulties of being a soldier, whether that is in the freezing snow of Russia on the Eastern front, dealing with the stupidity of higher brass (something that seems consistent throughout war novels, no matter the nation!) or sneaking through the woods of France. There is plenty of action here to keep the story moving and the dialogue is compelling and realistic.
A very interesting look at the Second World War from the view of an SS officer, something that I had never considered before, The Kingdom is worth reading for that alone but it is also an entertaining story of the entanglements of love in the time of war.
