Glass, Charles. The Deserters: A Hidden History of World War II. Far from the bright picture found in propaganda and nostalgia, the Second World War

Holland, Malcolm A. Sweatin' Out the Mission: 8th Airforce Ground Support in World War Two. For every bomber crew of 10 crew members it took at
least another 30 men on the ground to get it into and keep it in the air. Additional staff were needed to operate the British airfields used by USAAF. After the war

the death camps.

Longerich, Peter. Holocaust: The Nazi Persecution and Murder of the Jews. An academic history of the Holocaust that focuses on the decision-making
of the Nazis. Longerich contends that the Holocaust developed not from a single high command, but rather had a multitude of drivers and developed a life of its
own as orders from the top would be mediated and interpreted by local commanders and adapted to conditions on the ground. This is a monumental account of a
crime of unimaginable dimensions.
