Though I couldn’t spend as much time with Craig Shirley’s book as I would have liked, December 1941 is a very interesting, day-by-day summary of all that went on in one of the most important months of all of World War II. Each chapter is an account of one day, and overall it makes for a very interesting book.
The amount of research put into this book is outstanding and the book itself was quite interesting. I admit I wasn’t able to get through all of it without any skipping around a lot, but it’s the kind of book where that is easily allowed. Obviously, since it’s non-fiction, it’s not like you need to read every last part to be sure of what’s going on. It’s well-written and easy to read. The amount of research put into it is amazing, and it’s definitely something I would recommend to anyone into World War II history or history in general.
