About a week ago I decided it was important for me to begin building a timeline of events for the period leading up to World War II. I begin with only one section from the book “1939 – The War That Had Many Fathers.” What a time consuming decision!
I don’t know what further, if anything, I will do with this information. I might build on it as I read more about this history. I might go back to the several books I have already read on this subject and capture the information here. I might do nothing.
I have not attempted to create any narrative; I am merely trying to capture events in the order they occurred. In some cases, this proved quite difficult – toward the last weeks, even the time of day was important.
In any case, here it is. If I add anything substantial, I will post a note on the blog. Items in parenthesis refer to book:page.
