Should I order it?

If you're interested in WW II then probably yes. But if you already know more than something about Kursk I doubt that book will be of great relevance to you. It's start good but it won't be Hillberg Destruction of European Jews or Pipes Russian Revolution I suppose.

It's part of the series popular in Poland touching little known aspects of history. Going by other titles it will be good - it certainly started that way - but revolution it is not.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

It's about 20 of them ranging from subject of psychology of SD members of Einsatzkommandos to Nixon support of Yahya regime and genocide in Pakistan. There also books about Gulags and Tito internment camps. Some are works of obscure authors, some are written by luminaries such as Christopher Browning.

Well I would be homeless if I would buy every book that catch my interest, but after all there is only one good knowledge, and only one evil ignorance.

I'm afraid that Socrates greatness was measured by something other than his weight Wink.
