An excellent one volume encyclopedia that covers the chronology, weapons and personalities of WWII. I only found one mistake, the USS Indianapolis sunk a year too early.

This is an excellent campaign book, and does clearly show the effect of Wellington's first offensive battle since Rolica, three years earlier. The French thought Wellington wouldn't attack, no matter what the provocation and separated themselves for an outflanking maneuver. It was a bad idea, and Wellington's timing of his attack was perfect.

Thorough account, although it did not read especially well.

Often buying books to try to understand this subject better, I found the book is presented to achieve understanding of the army's covered, rather than just reorganization and repetition of the same facts so often given elsewhere. Shortcomings yes, too broad of a subject, but insightful at least in the material presented.
