Looking for WWI or WWII Book Recommendations

Recommended Posts

There's another book that Churchill quotes extensively called Hitler Directs His War, by Felix Gilbert that features translations of the minutes from Hitler's wartime meetings, the ones that weren't burned by the defeated Nazis.  (Supposedly 95.5 percent were destroyed).  There are some really interesting bits where the generals try to persuade him to do something that is sound strategy but he overrules them for some bizarre random reason.  Churchill estimates that the war would have dragged on much longer if Hitler had listened to his generals.
