Ratings and Reviews
Nice, but maps needed.
Nicely done, on the whole, but missing a hugely important tool for understanding the war: detailed maps. The overview maps are a good start, but battle maps - or at least more detailed and text-linked location maps are essential to forming a picture of how the war developed. A bit more style than substance, overall, but, except for the major omission of detailed maps, an engaging overview of the war.
Not all it claims to be
The video clips are under a minute, the photos are a handful, the write-ups would be longer in an encyclopedia. This app falls short of what it claims to be. Glad I got it for free. But still, too uninspiring to actually keep it on my device.
An excellent app that contains detailed information of key occurrences leading up to and during the Second World War, World War Two interactive is better in some ways than lengthy textbooks. I am certainly happy with my purchase and am looking forward to any new content the creators may add, job well done.
