    I thought this book was pretty decent It does teach people about the history of World War 2 and all but if you know this topic in history pretty well it feels like this book does not really teach you much Or in other words this book is for mediocre historians Now do not get me wrong I did learn some things such as the propaganda used by both sides and some personal stories of the survivors of the war such as the soldiers and their families I would recommend this book to newer historians of around the teen years and up because this book contains some material not really suitable for children Overall the book does teach one about World War 2 in one way or another and I am glad I was able to pick this book up
