Don't start with WWII. Start with books on WWI, then move onto the Russian Revolution, followed by books on the Holodomor, then get to WWII. Context is key.

Perhaps you should start off with Mein Kampf?

The Ford translation is good since it was written by someone who cared about proper context. It also rephrases s few things that don't make sense translated directly since there isnt a regular english context for the original german saying.

Be sure to read the 1939 unexpurgated fully annotated version. It is definitely the best version. The cover is solid red...

IIRC concentration camps and "the holocaust" were never mentioned in Eisenhowers or Churchills memoirs.

You're here and recommend a book "written" by the killer of the last Christians and the extermination of Europe just for a few more fresh kids to eat...

"Hey guys, I want to read a book about a historic subject that leaves out plenty of historic events surrounding this subject to better conform with my currently-held opinion!"

Just write your own book and keep reading it. That way you can make sure to never challenge your own version of history.

With the Old Breed by E.B. Sledge.

It is not a book about the overall war, but a soldier's perspective on the day to day existence of being in the Pacific theater, in particular at Peleliu and Okinawa.

That's a great book, and one of the first that came to my mind as far as an individual soldiers view of the war.
