As with "Prelude to War," this book is filled with tight, concise writing with a lot of visual aids. While lacking the bounce and zip of "Prelude to War," the writing is also the strong suit of this volume. There are many good photos and a couple of maps, but this is where it would've been nice to have less photos of the many geniuses of Jewish extraction who had to leave Germany thanks to Hitler and less photos of Aryan art (though the inclusion of both is appropriate and fascinating) and more maps -- particularly of the Norway invasion as well as Poland, Demark, Holland, Belgium and France -- not to mention the invasion of Finland by Russia.
This book can stand on its own, but is better bought with the whole 39-volume series (rather than buying them all piecemeal). As exhibited by the text, the valor of the outgunned Poles, Fins, Norwegians, Dutch and Belgians (not to mention the doughty Brits) stands in stark contrast to the lack of fight and defeatism shown by the French, particularly its leadership. Each conflict is dealt with a decent amount of detail, as is the subject of the book -- Blitzkrieg, the use of heavy bombers and dive-bombers followed by tanks to create weaknesses in defenses and motorized infantry to exploit them. Included are anecdotes of such legends as Hans Guderian and Erwin Rommel and his 7th Panzer Division. The book ends with the retreat at Dunkirk, which is where the third volume in this collection ("The Battle of Britain") begins.
For those interested in a deeper, modern one-volume account of this part of World War II, I'd recommend "The Blitzkrieg Legend," by Karl Heinz-Frieser. For my money, the best single-volume work on the European part of the war is William Shirer's "The Rise and Fall of the the Third Reich." For the Pacific theater, John Toland's "The Rising Sun" reigns supreme.
This book, as well as the other 38 volumes in this collection, will serve as a good introductory work on the various theaters and elements of the war. It should serve to stimulate the reader into finding an area of interest and delving deeper into it (or them) by buying deeper works.
