This impressive and authoritative book begins with the aftermath of World War I and the troubled times of the 1930s, when new political movements and grievances took shape. The main section of the book covers the war in a detailed chronology. From the rapid advance of Nazi forces across Europe to Operation Barbarossa, and from the battles in North Africa to the war in the Pacific, key engagements are discussed with the aid of helpful maps and battle plans. Feature spreads devoted to weaponry cover the key machinery and tactics with which war was waged. Key-fact boxes give battle outcomes and weapons statistics at a glance, and also provide a detailed impression of the most important political and military leaders. The final chapter covers the themes that went on to shape the second half of the 20th century - the establishment of the Iron Curtain, the beginning of decolonization and the reconstruction of Europe. The history and sheer scope of World War II is well-served by this intelligent and wide-ranging illustrated account of the conflict, told in an accessible style that is perfect for both the general and specialist reader.
