The Second World War Explained

By Michael O’Kelly

Here’s an excellent book explaining World War 2 in an overview fashion. Excellent for those who have never really looked into this part of history, excellent for younger readers too. Looking at the many 10’s of thousands of titles on this bit of our history their is enough to read for a person’s lifetime.
This book, with its large print, helps you get the main facts and events shown and explained in a mere day or two.

The book follows events in a mostly chronological fashion, and covers ALL fronts, not only west or east. It also provides some background to what started this dark page in men’s history.

There are maps (yay !) at the beginning of the book, photos in the middle and interesting appendices at the back. Appendix 1 : Meetings of Great Power Leaders. Appendix 2: Second World War Timeline.

Although I am a very seasoned WW2 reader, I can still recommend this book to many, for all the reasons mentioned above.
