A hefty tome, but fast moving and very well written.
The book is expansive with 1937 to 1941 strategic, political, economic, military, cultural and social commentary covered in equal measure.
Todman covers details of the period generally ignored by many volumes. Whilst this might appear to be a dry subject he manages to inject a very readable style with many eyewitness accounts. The book continues to the end of 1941 with a second volume to follow covering the remainder of the war.
A thoroughly fascinating read – Highly recommended.
I received this book free from Netgalley and was not required to write a positive review.
