(See all of my Book Reviews) – “The Hidden Places of World War II: The Extraordinary Sites Where History Was Made During the War That Saved Civilization” eBook was published in 2019 and was written by Jerome M. O’Connor (https://historyarticles.com).
I received an ARC of this non-fiction book through https://www.netgalley.com in return for a fair and honest review. I categorize this novel as ‘G’. The book looks at events of historical significance that are often overlooked. There are many relics still remaining of the War. This is not ‘a’ story but a collection of short articles.
I thoroughly enjoyed the 10 hours I spent reading this 360-page non-fiction book about WWII. I discovered several new bits of information reading this book. I like the selected cover art. I give this novel a 4.4 (rounded down to a 4) out of 5.
My book reviews are also published on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/31181778-john-purvis).
If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these three pages of interest.

- The “World War II Timeline” page expands almost daily and shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
- The “About WWII” page is a collection of links to posts that I have made over the years that are relevant to WWII.
