  1. Dick Tatro Dick Tatro says:

    This book would really be enjoyed by someone who is very interested in war strategy and statistics To a anti war Mennonite the interest would be peaked by the huge amound of waste both in resources and life Just a small example was a convoy of American ships that was sunk in early 1942 which were loaded with 7000 tanks enroute from the USA to the Soviet Unions Infromation was never released to the press because of low moral as a the result of the losses at Pearl Harbor Nearly 3000 men This is about the same death total as Pearl and many shipsand 30 ships were lost to German subs who attacked the American convoy near the Alaskan coast Those ships tanks and men are still on the floor of the Pacific Such waste is overhealming The death totals of the war will never be known because so many perished Estimates now for the Soviet Union are now over 20 million dead 6 million in the holucast in europe The numbers are unreal One thing that I agree with the Authors on is that the world today has a very dim memory of this terrible war It is important that we do not forget The world can never see something as terrible as this war It reminds me a again how we mush speak out against war To many young Americans WWII is just an exciting video game and not the terrible struggle it was Most have no concept of the losses that were suffered

    I would put this book in the bathroom read category Short anecdotes about different theateres of the war You can read a few sections learn a bit set the book down for a while and pick it up later without losing anythingThe book has lots of good information but what it is lacking is structure Even though there are chapters dedicated to fighting in Europe or the Pacific the anecdotes skip from a section on tank destroyers to a section on the number of bombs dropped and then to the number of doctorsYou finish the book feeling like you've learned something but you can't specifically say what

    Absolutely awful I made it through 188 pages before giving up I'd not even stick it in my bathroom The introduction pretty much sums it up withThis is not a history of World War II but revelations about many of the lesser known details Because it is a book of facts you don't read it from beginning to end but rather you jump in wherever it srikes your fancyThis book is badly written and heavily biased towards the US For instance the chapter entitled 'The Road to War' includes events all the way up to December 1941clearly a lot of the rest of the world had been at war for a couple of years prior to this Rather this chapter should be entitled 'The Road to the American Involvement in War'If the author had employed a decent editor then a lot of the facts presented in this book would have been far interesting and better presented than page long tables of numbers or rambling snippets of information that have no structureUnfortunately my fancy was not struck for very long I was expecting a book on secret weapon manufacture or delving into mind control techniues or clandestine operations It seems to me that the reason 'no one told you' about the little secrets in this book is that they would have dropped dead from boredom or astonishment at the overinflated opinion the author has of AmericansAnyway enough said I would not recommend this book

    A grab bag of trivia about World War II from an unabashedly US centric perspective If you ever wondered which wartime leader was a teetotaling vegetarian who consulted an astrologist Adolf Hitler how the Tomahawk cruise missile compares to the V 1 it is much precise and can fly 10 times the distance what the fatalities of the Soviet Army were 11 million soldiers and how the venereal disease infection rate in the US Army during World War II compares to that in other wars during World War I it was twice as high and during the Vietnam War it was almost 7 times as high this book is for you

    I read this in short snippets here and there over an extended period of time but as it is made of a series of semi organised facts I uite enjoyed it it suited that style of 'pick up just for a couple of pages' readingThe facts backed up a lot of WWII history that I already knew and helped me to understand some of the minor points that lead to great victories or even great blunders

  6. Czar Czar says:

    Lots of good information that they say is not available elsewhere

  7. Roland Bruno Roland Bruno says:

    Too many facts and figures and not enough actual secrets

    I registered a book at BookCrossingcom

  9. Steven Raszewski Steven Raszewski says:

    Fascinating Who knew

    Not much I can add to what's already been said What I will say is I break out the whole Dirty Little Secret books yearly and always enjoy them and the information contained
