Poor P : Obviously well-worn and handled. Reinforce political work and propaganda within the enemy's armed forces. December 29, I think Norman Davies has succeeded in his objective in this book, No Simple Victorywith this reader to show in this World War 2 tome that the western theater was a side show to the main theater in the USSR. Ten men fight like eight; that's not enough.

Very Good VG : Shows some signs of wear and is no longer fresh. An engaging and enlightening read for American history enthusiasts and scholars alike, The Victory with No Name brings this significant No Simple Victory book in American history back to light. Tell no lies. The victory of the USA and Britain was at best only partial, leading to 45 years of the cold war, a military standoff with the co-victors and the imposition of a totalitarian tyranny in the Soviet zone of Europe. The conflict of destroyed not thousands but millions of children: innocents systematically starved; innocents incinerated by firestorm attack; innocents packed into cattle wagons; innocents gassed in the death camps.

We should recognise as a matter of conscience that there have been many faults and errors in our action whether political or military: an important number of things we should have done we have not done at the right times, or not done at all. Alas, if this is perhaps an endearing sign of advancing years, not so forgivable is the slipshod nature of this book. Good G : This item is in okay condition and basically works well. And of the cultures that were lost, there is not a word.
