    Good, straightforward sociopolitical history of WWII. I LOVE the reader and will order any book he reads! (Simon Vance)

    If you are looking for a military history of World War 2, this is NOT the book for you! It mostly concerns political and social statistics of the era and although has some interesting data and conclusions, it is overly long and basically boring. The English narrator doesn't help either. If you want to know how many people Stalin killed compared to Hitler, this my be your forte, but for over 20 cd's it was a waste of time!

    I found this book very interesting. I had read of Stalin's ruthlessness, but I had no idea of the depth and breath of it. Amazing that these two men (Hitler and Stalin) could be so crazy, and get away with it. They used 'fear of death' to accomplish their ends, but isn't that what dictators do? A good overall view of the years before WW II in Russia, and Germany, and of the Allied alliance to defeat Germany.
