    Well-written, fluent and comprehensive, All Hell Let Loose by Max Hastings is the best single-volume history of the second world war yet published and one of its most chilling statistics is that over three million Soviet prisoners of war were starved to death or shot by the nazis.

    Hastings describes Churchill’s “brutal insensitivity” to the 1943-4 Bengal famine in which one to three million people died after appalling suffering as bare skeletons. Churchill reduced scarce shipping to India by 60 per cent and pleas for help, even from Viceroy General Wavell, were rejected callously. The author always recounts what really happened in the war, despite having right-wing political values.
