This is an easy-to-read collection of short snippets organized by time period before, during, and after World War II. I’d hesitate to call them bizarre tales, however. Curious coincidences and interesting anecdotes is probably more appropriate.
I would not recommend this as a reference book for those writing about WWII. It is, though, probably a great source of inspiration for those looking for story fodder or to add elements of realism to work they are already doing.
