Reader recommendation: The Guns at Last Light

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


The Guns at Last Light, Rick Atkinson's masterful account of World War II in Western Europe, is surely the definitive single-volume summary of that major part of the world-wide conflict.  Atkinson's accounts of the massive military and civilian casualties and of atrocities committed by both sides should inspire readers to "war no more"!
