By 1938 a second war in Europe seemed inevitable. It had only been twenty years since the war to end all wars, and the horrors of conflict were still fresh in the mind, but that didn’t stop all sides re-arming and preparing for yet more bloodshed.

The settlement at the end of World War One was neither clean nor decisive, and it punished Germany by confiscating territory and forcing the people to pay reparations to help rebuild France and reduce the Allied debt to America. This led to deep-seated anger and resentment among its people.

This erudite and moving book explores the underlying causes of the Second World War, its biggest battles and decisive campaigns. From the evacuation at Dunkirk, the Blitz and the Battle of Britain to the failure of Operation Barbarossa and the D-Day Landings in Europe, as well as the war in North Africa and the Pacific, this concise history of the conflict also examines the Final Solution and the ethics surrounding the dropping of two atom bombs on Japan.
