I learned so much from Mark Huddle's introduction about the roots of the civil rights movement, which has been conveniently cast as a 1960's phenomenon by so many journalists and historians, I would recommend this book for the introduction alone.

That said, the diary is truly eye-opening. Roi Ottley's unique perspective on the war lets him mix recording the on the ground, day-to-day ways wars affect all involved with the 10,000 foot view of what the war meant for global politics as a whole and colonialism in particular. This text fills a gaping hole in published writing about World War II and I applaud Mr. Huddle for getting this published and getting this important document published.
