From Library Journal:

This work was developed as a text for military history students at West Point and has never before been distributed commercially. It retains the qualities and the defects of its origins. It is essentially an expanded campaign narrative, at its best when discussing theater strategy and operations. Its volumes are well organized and clearly written. Its graphics are superb. It is anything but an uncritical apologia for U.S. performance. It is also, unfortunately, a work without an audience. Specialists will find nothing new in its pages, particularly in view of an editorial decision against comprehensively updating the text and references to take account of recent scholarly developments. General readers are likely to be deterred by the narrow focus. Peter Calvocoressi and Guy Wint's Total War: The Story of World War II (LJ 11/1/72; Pantheon, 1989. rev.ed.), remains superior. Doubleday Military Book Club featured selection.
