Customer Reviews of Twelve Turning Points of the Second World War

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An interesting and readable look at World War II turning points The author gives us a readable book about what he sees are the main events of World War II: The German takeover of France, the Battle of Britain. Operation Barbarossa the Atom Bomb etc. Each chapter has detail but is explained in a way that everybody can understand. The use of pictures is also worth noting. While there are some things to quarrel about (why not look at El-Amein, could there be more turning points the author still does a find job and this book is warmly recommended.

Editorial Reviews

This is really a collection of essays which asks readers to think again...Even those who would disagree with Prof. Bell's reference to the UK 'bankruptcy' in 1945 would accept that the arguments put forward here are a refreshing adjustment to views too readily accepted -- T.B.
