One really, really comprehensive history about the Depression and World War II is David M. Kennedy's Freedom from fear : the American people in depression and war, 1929-1945 but it's very long so you may not want to start with that. However, it is a very interesting read. This book will definitely show you the American side of things.
If you are interested in the Holocaust as part of WWII, then I would recommend reading Anne Frank or Victor Klemperer. There are two books by Victor Klemperer entitled, I Will Bear Witness 1942-1945: A Diary of the Nazi Years and I Will Bear Witness: A Diary of the Nazi Years, 1933-1941 (Modern Library Paperbacks) Also, you could read Auschwitz and the Allies by Martin Gilbert.
I hope I have helped!! World War II is a very broad subject and many books have been written on it from the military perspective, to the social perspective, to the political perspective.
Calvocoressi being the better write to me. LibraryThing also has a Second World War History group that might be worth looking at as well.
