I've listened to a talk by Hanson on the content of this book and it sounds pretty interesting.
Planning on picking it up. Has anyone read it and care to offer their view on it?

Thanks

I like Hanson. Got a few of his titles. I thumbed through this one, and put it down. Not striking enough to grab me, immediately, given my WWII collection. I'll get it later. In fact, given this reminder, I'll get it next time I see it.

Peter Hitchens has a new book coming out called The Phoney Victory: WWII delusions.

I'll probably look it over, in November, and put it down, too. But from what little I learned from googling it, I may not pick it up.

Hanson I always knew I'd get.
