Has anyone read Hall of Mirrors, War & Warfare in the C20 yet? Any thoughts?

I haven’t, but I shall add it to my Amazon wishlist.
Incidentally, I think my Amazon algorithm is broken. When I follow your link I get this on my ‘other stuff we want you to buy because you looked at this item’
I’m struggling to find a connection 🙂

I got the correct link but I wasn’t at all impressed by the book’s description. Amazon, or my ipad, wouldn’t let me copy snd paste the offending sentences so I’ve had to screenshot them snd post them here as a photo.
Richard Overy certainly comes to a conclusion about strategic bombing in his book ‘The Bombing War’, and I’m pretty certain that we know how the Allies defeated Germany in NW Europe. Or am I wrong. Anyway, this doesn’t look like a book for me I’m afraid.

As I didn’t enjoy Jim’s previous book as much as I expected, I am looking for excuses not to buy this. I’ll probably crumble in the end, but looking at the first review on Amazon UK makes it sound like a good read.
Mr. Picky was especially delighted that the reviewer replaced “tour d’horizon” with “tour de raisin”, a useful term I intend to adopt if any of our old ditch-hiking group get back to doing bibulous battlefield tours.
All the best,
