To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Purchased this as a gift for a friend who has been collecting this Time-Life series for almost 20 years. This completed the collection and he said its the best book in the series. Must be as its hard to find in person. Gotta love Amazon for that.
As a child I collected 29 of the 39 volumes of Time Life's great World War II series. I anxiously awaited the arrival of this book as I resume completing the series, which began in 1977. The book is almost as good as new. The only thing missing was the box that Time-Life sent them in years ago. As with the other volumes of the series, the book presents its subject very well. It contains great information that does not bog the reader down in boring details or minutiae. The pictures are great additions that reinforce the story being told or emphasize those terrible moments of time.
The book tells the story of Germany's civilian struggles with the war and does so without being over-technical or complicated and in a such a way that it held my attention through each chapter. I look forward to reading the subsequent volumes. After 34 years the series still entertains, fascinates, and reminds just how terrible that war was for mankind.
A good read which I highly recommend for students of World War II history.
Not easily found, as I'm down to only a couple more books to complete this comprehensive text and photo study of World War Two. Like the other books of the series, this book is no exception to the exemplary work of the Time/Life staff.
