"Former Canadian naval officer and associate editor of Defence
Report London, Dr. Murray has collected a dozen essays by scholars
from nearly as many countries, that look, for the most part, at
rather neglected aspects of the Second World War[...] All of the
essays throw new light on often neglected corners of the war, but
several are particularly valuable, perhaps most notably those on
the Indian Ocean, Red guerrillas in the Baltic, and the Italian
civil war [...] this is a valuable read for anyone with an interest
in the Second World War."
