Review by: Ravi Sharma, 06 August 2012
'Great book, it takes you through the causes, formation & aftermath of WWII, through great illustrations. The high points of this book are the timeline based event charts, maps and section covering the details of war memorials. I think this book is a must have for any history fan and especially for WWII details. I would be more delighted if some more details/pages had been given on the Asia-Pacific war and if the text size was bigger.'
