After the Reich

Pretty amazing how little I had known about Europe just after WWII. This one should be on everyone’s WWII book list.

The Winter Fortress by Neal Bascomb.

About a group of Norwegians who worked undercover with the help of the English to foil Hitler's plan for a nuclear bomb.
A lot of sneaking around, sabotage type stuff. Great story that's not that well known.

"The guns of Navarone" is a really good book and I think they made a movie about it back in the day

re: Best WW2 books?
I have read scores of WW2 histories over the years and consider myself well informed on the subject. Most of the books mentioned in this thread I have read and recommend. I would add the recent The Second World Wars by Victor Hansen Davis. It raises and answers a few new questions regarding war production and economics that have been ignored or treated cursorily over the years and is very well written. If you specifically want to read about The Pacific War, Ian Toll’s trilogy (mentioned by others) is exceptional. The third book is due out later this year.

You recommended this book before, so I bought it from Amazon. Decent read and well researched, but more of a romance novel than a war story.

Currently reading Target Tokyo: Jimmy Doolittle and the Raid that Avenged Pearl Harbor. Fascinating. Those dudes were some serious badasses.
