Just completed reading “The Winds of War” by Herman Wouk. An awesome book about an American family caught in the storm of the World War II. For the first time in my life I was genuinely interested in WW-II. Whenever people around me talked about it, I just shut my mouth and tried to understand what it was all about. Always I was unsuccessful.
I watched many movies on WW-II, but they were always regarding one specific incident, one specific battle, never the whole war. “Enemy at the Gates” was an awesome movie, but what was the Battle of Stalingrad? I never knew the details, I even tried to read some books on WW-II, but none held my interest. This was the first book that had my full attention.
A part in this book had the German perspective of WW-II, why Germany lost the war, what were the mistakes made by Hitler etc. I’d like to read more about WW-II, especially the German perspective. I’ll search for books online. But I have no idea which are good books, which are not. So people, help me out. Do tell me some nice websites and nice books from where I can know more about WW-II.
