Why did I pick these up?  I am driving from Portland to San Diego next month with some friends and they asked for a history lesson on World War II while we were driving.

What is the story?  Both of these books are histories of World War, the eyewitness book has lots of pictures and is pretty comprehensive and the other book gives answers to some questions that aren’t answered in the other book and that I feel are often overlooked in most books.

Did I like them?  Yes they were both very comprehensive and were a good refresher course in WWII history.

Grade (for both)-A

What is with the title of the review?  I am driving to San Diego with Robert and he asked me to give a history lesson on WWII while we are driving so I needed a refresher course.
