Eubank (emeritus, history, City U. of New York) explores the reasons for the eruption of World War II, arguing that most operated under the illusion that sufficient security measures existed in the wake of World War I to make more war unthinkable. He examines the role of the "appeasers" of Germany, arguing that they had broad-based popular support for their policies.

Overview

Eubank (emeritus, history, City U. of New York) explores the reasons for the eruption of World War II, arguing that most operated under the illusion that sufficient security measures existed in the wake of World War I to make more war unthinkable. He examines the role of the "appeasers" of Germany, arguing that they had broad-based popular support for their policies. He places more of the blame for the war on Stalin, who through "duplicity," allowed Hitler to create his war machine. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
