This is an auction for AN INCOMPLETE HISTORY OF WORLD WAR II by Edwin Kiester Jr.

"An Incomplete History of World War II does not pretend to be an exhaustive tract on the history of this devastating world conflict. Yet this may be the most enticing aspect of this work and what makes it so readable. It is a highly digestible account, as reflected in the lives and stories of those who took part in it. An Incomplete History of World War II focuses on the lives and anecdotes of famous leaders like Patton and MacArthur, but also the GIs who served with dignity. The book contains two large world maps that show which countries made up the Axis and Allied powers, which others remained neutral, the major battles of the war, and even the site of concentration camps. It also contains many interesting photographs. Given that the book has an introduction that is followed by 24 chapters, there are plenty of fascinating people and events to make for a very pleasant reading experience. Also of considerable historical importance are the many articulate accounts of the people involved in the creation of the "Bataan Air Force," the crucial importance that weather played in the planning of the D-Day invasion, and a band of bumbling, world weary spies that Hitler sent to the shores of Amagansett Beach in order to destabilize America. Of no lesser importance is the chapter on the Belgian Resistance, the "Rats of Tobruk," the siege of Tobruk, the discovery of the Enigma machine and the ensuing quest to break Nazi secret codes."
