Comments The Mighty Endeavor: The American War In Europe

  • Stephen

    3.5 stars. This is an EXCELLENT one volume history of the American War in Europe during World War II. Obviously, not as comprehensive as some other works that deal in depth (sometimes over multiple volumes) with individual battles or portions of the European theater in World War II. That said, this book discusses in some detail all of the "major" campaigns including (1) the bsttle for the seas against the German U-boats (2) the landing in North Africa and the North African Campaign, (3) the inva [...]


  • Ginger Miller

    A military bookFrom the standpoint of the military actions this book is intelligent and comprehensive. Leaving no battle to chance. It does fail in a major way to offer a clear picture of Nazi inhumanity to European Jews, which is rarely mentioned, as usual. It downplays the role of African-American contribution, as usual. It also shows the failure of "Ike" to save Czechoslovakia from communist Russia despite being invited into the city. Battle perfect but short on explanations of a more humane [...]


  • Jane Thompson

    World War II StoryThis book is unique among World War II histories because the author describes in detail many of the aspects of the war in Europe that other writers do not. For example, a history of the last months of war in Germany.


  • Edward Thomson

    Very interesting readThis book really interested me. The Americans were the only reason he allies won the war, they supplied everyone and contributed huge troops. It was informative to read of their war effort.


  • Grant

    A classic overview history of American forces in the ETO, with primary focus on the ground war.


  • Bill V

    This is a creditable treatment of the American involvement of the war in North Africa and in Europe. The majority of this is the ground war that in theater, although there is some coverage of the air war and less still of the naval war, mostly U-boat related. The books starts off slowly but becomes more interesting as each chapter is read. There are points where the author exhibits a pro-American or Pro-western allied bias. Unlike several books of this type, this one affords some coverage of the [...]


  • Dave

    Good overview of the American war effort in Europe during the Second World War. While it is a bit dated in places (it first appeared in 1969, although there is a small update concerning later revelations about ULTRA), the text has stood up to the test of time. Recommended reading for anyone who is just getting into WWII history, or anyone looking for more details on the U.S. war experience.

    Highly readable book of the European war and the Mediterranean theatreThis book is the best one I've read about the ear. It encompasses three theatres in the western hemisphere. Detailed and complex without going beyond the average readers ability to comprehend.


  • Bridget Schabron

    A great overview of the European Theater of World War II, looking not just at the Allies side of decision-making and action, but also the Axis. Great book for anyone who wants a semi-detailed history of this part/area of WWII--even a beginner who is mostly unfamiliar with the history of the war.
