Unexplained Mysteries of World War II
by William B. Breuer
1997, John Wiley & Sons Inc.
Ah, ya just gotta love World War Two, don’tcha? Hell of a party. And of course, any time you involve tens of millions of people running around the entire planet for years and years, attempting to blow each other to bits, some weird ass shit is gonna happen somewhere along the way.
LOTS of weird ass shit in fact.
So WB decided to put it all in a book and share it with the rest of us.
About a zillion little stories, just a page or two in length, sorted into various categories like “Odd Coincidences” or maybe “Strange Encounters.” This is a world-class book for the shitter. You can read as much or as little as time allows and never worry about having to remember where you were last time you picked it up. Hell, just open a page at random and proceed. Real user friendly that way.
My only gripe with this book is the damned title. Unexplained Mysteries is off the mark, and leads you to think that it’s for conspiracy whackos or something like that. It isn’t. Perhaps “Goofy Shit” woulda been a better title. I dunno.
