Anmeldelser

John Toland was an historian who conducted extensive interviews with prominent figures on both sides of WWII. He was a relief from the very nationalistic approach provided by the official histories, and the war correspondents cashing in on their wartime work. he was also a good prose stylist with an eye for the telling detail. The first six months of the Pacific War was a touchy subject for the American military when these books were hitting the stands, so the srtyle of exposure was much needed.

A good account of the fighting in the Ardennes in 1944 - 45. The maps are adequate, and the personal vignettes quite illuminating.

This was pretty outstanding. Straightforward telling of the Japanese side of the build up and conduct during the war. Great account of the lead up to Pearl Harbor. Well placed capsule stories intermixed with the broad narrative of the big events. No complaints.... this was super.
