What was the ultimate cost of World War II? For the Axis nations, it was defeat, humiliation, and economic ruin; for the Allies, the price was more subtle. They had instituted economic and social policies to pursue the war, many of which struck to the very heart of liberty. And soon, hostility between two of the Allied powers, America and the Soviet Union, would blossom into the Cold War.
The United States at War series is a collection of presentations that review the political, economic, and social tensions that have erupted in military conflict and examine how the conflict resolved, or failed to resolve, those tensions.

There are so many bad points, where to begin ....
This is a five hour audiobook but way too much time is spent on WWI (over 1 hour)
Generals like Omar Bradley, Douglas MacArthur, and Sir Bernard Law Montgomery are hardly even mentioned
Many instances of historically incorrect information.
Many battles ( Market Garden, Kursk, Monte Casino and alot more ) aren't mentioned
Need I saw more?
I bought this audiobook mostly because of George C. Scott however, the performance was dry and fast paced making the audiobook very boring to listen to.
There are many books out there on WWII far better then this one.
Do yourself a favor and check them out before buying this one
