3039 1941: Our Lives in a World on the Edge, by William K. Klingaman (read 29 Nov 1997)This book covers the year 1941--except for an unnecessary epilogue--and while it is based on rather ordinary secondary sources, really caught me up. 1941 was a year I am very familiar with--I was in 7th and 8th grade and was intensely aware of the momentous events of the year. Most of the book discusses war, though it also covers other events: Virginia Woolf's suicide, Whirlaway's triple crown, Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak, Ted Williams' .400 plus batting average, Mickey Owen's passed ball. Little I did not know, but the events re Yugoslavia, Greece and Crete took on new clarity for me. I sheerly enjoyed this book, even though it is journalistic history, not academic history. ( )
