Bounding from last year's masterful depiction in 1919: The Year Our World Began ( LJ 8/87), Klingaman now portrays in his absorbing style the vital year of 1941. By alternating information on everyday life throughout the world with battle scenes and diplomatic skirmishes, Klingaman evokes the era's feeling in a readable, well-rounded synthesis. Nineteen forty-one was truly a pivotal year; by year's end the war, and the world, were drastically and irrevocably changed. Considering Klingaman's skill at making history exciting reading, his audience will undoubtedly be fascinated with this latest. Recommended for public and academic libraries.
