Topic Recommendations for WW2 history books.
A few examples would be Arnhem 1944: The Airbourne Battle. Or The Third Reich At War.
It's a subject that interests me, always has done. Was raised watching old war films and going to air shows etc, so I guess it rubbed off on me lol.
Military history in general, so if anyone has any further recommendations, they'll be greatly appreciated :) Same goes for military leaders. I've read a lot about Patton and Rommel, but would like more to read about!
At University I done a lot of work on the Wehrmacht actually so naturally know a few good books in regards to this subject. I'll list a few which I find interesting, however they are mainly based on the Wehrmacht.
Manstein: *@##*@'s Greatest General - Major General Mungo Melvin OBE
This book is about Generalfeldmarschall Erich Von Manstein, a fascinating figure, not only because he was a strategic genius, but because he was a moral failure. Written by a former British Army officer so he knows his stuff, great read.
Achtung Panzer - Heinz Guderian
This book was written by Generaloberst Heinz Guderian before the Second World War. It outlines tank doctrine which would later be used by the Wehrmacht in the war. If you like Rommel, then you will love this guy, he is argubly a more able tank commander than Rommel ever was, this man saved the offensive through the Ardennes.
If you want to know anymore, or anything in specific, just respond and I will try and get back to you. Hope you get a chance to read these, they're fanatstic.
