Keegan and his distinguished team of consultants have produced a model atlas of a complex subject. The book's core is its operational maps. Technically well executed, they are complex but never confusing, and provide a comprehensive graphic survey of the war's major and minor fronts and theaters. This is complemented by sophisticated presentations on such less-obvious subjects for an atlas as resistance, intelligence, and special operations. The accompanying texts, spare but not simplistic, reflect state-of-the-art scholarship. A glossary, a chronology, and a section on military formations complete a work that, despite its size and cost, belongs in the hands of every serious student of World War II. For most collections. Military Book Club alternate.
