Inferno: The World at War, 1939-1945

Inferno: The World at War, 1939-1945 - Max Hastings A very engaging history of the war, told from the perspective of the people (both soldiers and civilians) who lived through it. I have a hard time reading military books - too much talk about strategy leaves me cold, as I'm interested in the human history of things. This is the best book on WWII that I have read from that perspective. It's well laid out, both by geography and year. I read it very quickly for such a subject!
