The Order of the Day

We rated this book:


The Order of the Day by Eric Vullard illustrates how a catastrophe can unfold and how there might be warning signs along the way. It shows different perspectives on what led up to the Second World War. I would recommend this book to older and more advanced readers because Eric Vullard incorporates many advanced words in his writing, and you really have to be able to imagine what is happening. Eric really helps plant this image about how easily things can go wrong and how the power of blackmailing and persuasion can make everything turn upside down. He illustrates the power of words. While reading The Order of the Day, I had some issues comprehending the text because of how advanced the word choice was. When you read this book, you have to illustrate a mental image in your mind of what is happening and the order in which it is happening to understand how something happened. The book really provides insight on behind-the-scenes planning, the Second World War, and the separate stages. The book takes you back in time to the point where you feel like you are standing right next to the people making the decision on how to win the war. It shows the stages behind the Final Solution and many other atrocities that were committed during World War Two. Eric Vullard writes in a way the makes you feel that you just have to agree. He evokes emotions like dread and astonishment that make you think that these scenes didn’t happen over 90 years ago, but like they happened just yesterday. He really makes you feel things about the Second World War that you have never felt before. In conclusion, The Order of the Day is a story that makes you agree with the author on certain points of view even though the story is written in a non-biased form.
