If you want the real colour behind those back and white newsreels then read this book.The story of World War 2 is often told by the battles, but I do find the story of how an army of amateurs was shaped into a war winning machine fascinating.My father was conscripted at the age of 18 in 1943 and I had always wondered how I would have coped at that tender age with such a life changing event.

One of the best books of military history that I have ever read.
