Mr. Shirer knows his stuff and anyone interested in history and World War II should read this book. The two world wars endured during the 20th century were complex and deadly and to paraphrase a quote, those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it. We have teetered on the verge of WW III several times over the last 60 years. Kennedy's stand-off with Krushchiev was the closest. Our existence is precarious enough without the element of war. To understand what and why happened in the 1940's and the attitudes of the main players is important to understand so that we may recognize the pattern that leads to such conflict. Read and learn.
