Review by uqrweymo
Peter and Dan Snow did a very nice job explaining some of the most critical battles from the 20th century. The thing I find great about this book is the way it is written: setting up the scene, then explaining the background of the conflict and then the outcomes and consequences. A very enjoyable read.
