Grade 6-9 Another in the list of British imports to the American market. Backed by an impeccable list of military experts on an ``advisory panel'' for the series, Messenger offers a grimly factual, blow-by-counter blow account of the campaigns, worldwide, of 1939-45. The 62 double-column pages, illustrated with maps and photographs, some in full color, allow for only the briefest account of even the most important battles. The emphasis on strategy and tactics permits no discussion of ideological or psychological factors, and the even-handed narrative allows no judgment of relative significance of the campaigns politically or culturally. The book is too introductory in its coverage for serious military hobbyists, and too one-sidedly ``war games'' in its approach to be useful as a history of World War II. Brief appendixes on ``Key Commanders'' and a brief chapter on the war's ``impact'' do not alter the fact that this is military history in the traditional style.
