"The Complete Idiot's Guide to World War II" is definately an "easy-read"...but it is a fascinating one as well. For instance, did you know that "Nazi" was originally a term of derision? Or why Hitler's Germany was called the "Third Reich"? (What were the first two "Reichs"?) The book is filled with scattered bits of information like that.
You'll find much information in easy-to-read little boxes under such titles as: "GI Jargon", "War Lore", and "Ask the General". Each chapter also has several divisions with titles which make one want to read more: "Hindenburg Without the Air", "Stalin's D-Day", "War is Easy as ABC", "War Without Rules", "Hungry for Hungary", "What's Different About the Jews", "Bataan Death March". Every chapter ends with a section titled: "The Least You Need To Know", which is a summary/review of what you just read.
If I were to find fault with this book, the only shortcoming would be the fact that the War in the Pacific receives short change. The author of this book seemed much more interested in the War in Europe.

I'm in a upper-level undergrad college course and have two other "academic" books to read as well. I can't help it- they both have great critical reviews and all that, but they are dry to the bone.

This book has actually helped give me an overview of why things happened because I read it before I dive "into the weeds". After I read the assigned chapters in my two college history books, I come out with a better understanding with the Idiot's guide than had I read the books without the Idiot's guide. Plus, I have used this Idiot's guide to answer some of my many essay questions.

The only flaw that I have noticed is that once it hits upon the overview, it doesn't give you any more in depth facts and then I plunge into 30 mins or more of actual college research. If my college texts was as interesting as this one, I would actually like to take my mandatory History course (sorry to all you History lovers who might be reading my review). I give this book my recommendation for a good, quick overview read of WW2 and I strongly recommend to other college students out there to read this book before you take a WW2 course.

Want this as part of your World War series collection. Covers those areas that did not get covered in school. I don't consider it an Idiot's Guide. Makes good conversational material.
It's so easy

This is a good general overview of World War Two which covers all the major events,causes and personalities of the conflict, including ,the aftermath and the cost of the war.All the usual suspects are dealt with including Hitler, Stalin, FDR,Churchill, Ike, the Rommel, MacArthur,Patton, etc.The major battles and fronts are well covered and include Blitzkrieg of 1939 and 1940, the Battle of Britain,Operation Barbarossa, Pearl Harbor, Stalingrad,Midway,Guadalcanal,and the wars end. There are also details of life on the homefronts, life in prison camps(the section on the Berga prison is great) along with quotes from witnesses- both famous and not.There are also some real strengths including some really good insights into the centrality of anti-Semitism to Nazi ideology along with provocative topics such as the discussion of bombing Auschwitz.This is a good introduction that does not skip controversy.Works by Gerhard Weinberg and Martin Gilbert are much more complete and insightful but if you want a good refresher or a solid starting point- this is the book. I felt more maps and photos might be helpful particularly for those just starting to explore this vast, complex,sad chapter in human history. The suggested readings section is quite well balanced.

This book had me. This thing kept me up late. While reading this I felt like the events were unfolding anew to me. When Hitler took control of Europe I felt like I was living it. When Pearl Harbor was bombed I felt like it just happened. The retaking of Europe and the invention and use of the atomic bomb all felt like they were current events. This book gives the perfect overview of such a gigantic subject. Everyone should learn about this. Going into this book I knew little of the subject besides the few key events like Pearl Harbor, D-Day, Hiroshima, Hitler, but after reading this book I can realize a larger whole and where these events fit and many more things that went on. Also the book begins with a brief overview of World War One, which is essential to know in order to understand World War Two. I cannot believe what happened in this war and in this modern age.

The only complaints I have are that because it's an Idiot's Guide book the tone is sometimes a little too comfortable with the little side notes and anecdotes, but still the author does a good job of not letting the tone get too too casual. The one other thing is that I wish that it had better maps. There are a small number mixed into the chapters, but they are not too detailed. I found myself consulting my own maps. All that aside, for anyone who has no clue about this war and what all went into it will find this the perfect start.
As a high school teacher of college-level material, I will not prepare a class lecture on World War II without this book. It is easy to read, explains things very well, and has so many interesting details that no one can read through it without learning something new on each page. This coming from someone whose favorite reading subject IS WW2.
This book will help anyone understand World War II, and is a lifesaver to those of us who need fast reference in clear English.
