The Second World War: A Short History
OverviewA history of World War II, and an examination of its causes, how it was won and lost, and its far-reaching consequences for humanity. In tracing the key events of both the European and the Far Eastern wars, R.A.C. Parker outlines the strategies of the participants, the economies and societies that underlay them, and the strengths and weaknesses of their fighting forces. He describes the decisive battles and analyzes the reasons for their outcome, paying close attention to special features of the war: mobile warfare, forced migration, the Holocaust, strategic and nuclear bombing. Unlike many other histories of the war, this book places British and European involvement squarely in an international perspective, and the author never shies away from raising fundamental questions. This book is intended for A-level and undergraduate students of modern history, and general readers interested in the history of World War II.
