About the Book

How to Lose WWII is an engrossing, fact-filled collection from Bill Fawcett that sheds light on the biggest, and dumbest, screw-ups of the Great War.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Fawcett gathers 37 concise, analytical, finger-pointing accounts of these and other battles from ancient times to the late 1960s. He and contributors Brian Thomsen, William R. Forstchen, Douglas Niles and Edward E. Kramer readably and insightfully convey a wide knowledge of military history.” —Publishers Weekly

“Informative and enjoyable...This book will appeal to both general readers and amateur military historians.” —Booklist

“I recommend it to the armchair strategist and indeed to any student of military history over the ages.” —Esprit de Corp
