Review: THE SENTINELS: FORTUNES OF WAR by Gordon Zuckerman

Not too long ago I read The Sentinels: Fortunes of War by Gordon Zuckerman for the WWII challenge.  Here’s an excerpt of my review from Diary of an Eccentric (click the link to read the full review):

Zuckerman has written a unique novel about World War II that concentrates on the economics of war, rather than battle scenes or concentration camps.  It really got me thinking about greed and how the lines between businesses and governments can blur, which is relevant to the current state of the economy.  I found the book hard to put down, and I think it would appeal both to those interested in World War II and readers simply looking for a fast-paced read with some war, history, economics, action, and romance thrown into the mix.
