Should be titled "The Cracked Guide to WW2."
The book is a collection of short chapters organized as top 10 lists. Great format for websurfing cubicle drones, "history buffs" not so much. Some of the chapters are moderately interesting, others made me want to tear out my hair in frustration. There's nothing here that couldn't be gleaned from an afternoon's reading on Wikipedia, and some of the the entries are remarkably uninsightful.
Avoids the 1-star because it would be decent bathroom reading.
