9780060158125: Delivered from Evil: The Saga of World War Two

Delivered from Evil: The Saga of World War II -- The First Complete One-Volume History
xvii, 998 pp. 8vo. "A one-volume retelling of World War II may seem a dubious proposition, but this veteran writer of popular history has done an outstanding job. Wisely beginning with Versailles, he uses a topical approach to illuminate his vast canvas. There is more storytelling than serious analysis here, but the wartime drama is related with deftness and enticing detail. His portrayal of personalities is excellent. This work is more mature than the author's vaguely unsatisfying Wars of America (1968). He does for World War II what John Costello did for The Pacific War (LJ 12/1/81)." -- Library JournalKeywords: MILITARY WORLD WAR II 1939 1945 HISTORY WWII
