All Hell Let Loose - The World at War 1939-45: Max Hastings, Oct. 16 2012
A number of WW2 books have been published this year (2012)and excellent some of them are. However, All Hell Let Loose brings the awfulness of war into sharp focus in a way that none of the others manage to achieve. Frightening and quite brilliant. Mandatory reading for all presidential or prime ministerial hopefuls!
