The Second World War in the West

Author(s): Charles Messenger


Defeat in 1918 left many of the losers recalcitrant, Germany foremost. Drawn to totalitarianism under a new leader in the 1930s in 1939 embarked on a second European war to reverse the outcome of the First. That rapidly became a World War, whose character was dominated by the development and refinement of the embryo technology of 1918. This volume covers the blitzkrieg of 1939-41, the war in Russia, and the Anglo-American counter-offensives in Africa, the Mediterranean and North-West Europe, concluding with the campaigns of 1945 that resulted in the final defeat of Nazism in Europe.
