The World War 2 Trivia Book: Interesting Stories and Random Facts from the Second World War (Trivia War Books Book 1) The World War 2 Trivia Book: Interesting Stories and Random Facts from the Second World War by Bill O'Neill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When was the last time someone around you brought up World War Two?

It’s a pretty popular war. Maybe you heard about it yesterday. Maybe last month. But it was probably recent. And when it came up, did you wish that you could be the one to casually drop a fact that would have everyone in the room going, “Wow, I never knew that!”

With this book, you can be that person.

You can read it in just a few minutes a day.

Chapters are bite-sized and easy to read, meant for normal people instead of war historians!

Each chapter ends with a bonus helping of trivia and some quick questions to test your knowledge.

You’ll zoom through this book and be hungry for more.

Get ready to impress your friends with your knowledge – not just of the main events of World War Two, but of all the gritty details and weird true facts. By the time you finish this book, you’ll have a fact for every occasion, from the first moment someone thought about having a second World War, to the most recent blockbuster movies about it.

So get ready to meet characters from Adolf Hitler, rejected art student, to Jack Churchill, the broadsword-swinging male model. Find out why World War Two started in the first place, and why it’s never a good idea to invade Russia in winter. Learn why the United States was going to stay out of the war, how Canadians stole airplanes for the British, and what an orange soft drink has to do with the Nazis.

Some of the things you’re going to learn are sad. Some are scary. Some are sexy. And some are downright strange! It’s everything your history teacher never got around to telling you.


*I won an ecopy of this title in a LibraryThing's Member Giveaway. This does not affect my review.*

I enjoyed reading this, and learning some interesting facts about WWII. Easy to read and understand, this book is perfect for trivia fans who want to know more about WWII. None of the facts are hard to find and most are well known by historians, but it's perfect for normal people who just want to know a bit more, or anyone who wants to learn some neat facts. I enjoyed the layout of this book, with short chapters ending with some trivia questions to help you think more about what you just read.
