Antony Beevor is authoritative and lucid in much of this mammoth history, but the size of the task sometimes proves too great. Over the past few decades, the second world war has become so vast and various a phenomenon – so many wars in one – ... more.
Although filling the broadest canvas on a heroic scale, Beevor's THE SECOND WORLD WAR never loses sight of the fate of the ordinary soldiers and civilians whose lives were crushed by the titanic forces unleashed in this, the most terrible war in history.
