Andrew Roberts, author of “[amazon_link id=”0061228583″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Masters and Commanders[/amazon_link]” and “[amazon_link id=”0060875992″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]A History of the English-Speaking Peoples Since 1900[/amazon_link],” has produced what Gen. George Patton might call “a helluva book” – the first totally readable one-volume history of World War II, a literary and historical blitzkrieg, propelled by strong, positive prose, written with concision yet a wealth of detail, and supplied with an arsenal of sources.
Mr. Roberts sweeps at top speed through all the theaters of war. From Poland in 1939, through the quick victories in Norway, France and the Low Countries, the Battle of Britain, the invasion of Russia and the initial successes, then Stalingrad, the Battle of Kursk, and the 1,000-mile retreat back to Berlin, Mr. Roberts sees this, above all, as Hitler’s war.
