Quality paper, 349 pages. Ages 14 through Adult.
Can be used for courses in World History, U.S. History, International Relations, Economics, Business, Finance, and Government.
World War II: The Rest of the Story & How It Affects You Today (by Harry Browne)
The best book I've read on World War II. It provides genuinely original insights on why the U.S. didn't need to become involved, and destroys many myths that persist about the war. Maybury ties the misunderstandings about World War II to the misunderstanding about today's U.S. foreign policy. I also strongly recommend his books World War I and Whatever Happened to Justice?
World War II: The Rest of the Story & How It Affects You Today (by Jim Cox, Author, "The Concise Guide to Economics," Associate Professor Georgia Perimeter College)
Richard Maybury is a great author! In his two-volume world war series, "World War II" along with the companion volume World War I, Maybury will give you a new perspective on wars and history, filled with facts of interest rarely mentioned elsewhere. "Uncle Eric" writes succinctly and in a way to be understood. Highly, highly recommended!
