Hundreds of new books about World War II are published every year, it is impossible for any individual to keep track of them all. Since World War II Today focuses on the individual experiences of people in the war I have used this as the criteria for the books that I bring to your attention. Individual autobiographies and memoirs are featured heavily here, along with a few notable books that throw new light on particular aspects of the war.
I don’t often have the time to provide a formal “review” to do many of these books justice. It is also very difficult to be judgemental about such books. Some memoirs and diaries read better than others and inevitably become more popular. But there is almost always some historical value, some extra insight into some aspect of the war, even if the author did not have a natural flair for writing. So I tend to adopt an all inclusive approach.
