I thought the book was going to cover the details of technologies of WWII. He even stated that the book was not to cover the general strategies. However, the book just superficially covers the people who developed the weapons or equipment - then jumps back into the strategies ?? The book probably tried to cover too many facets of the war. Disappointing.
