Overview

World War II was the most immense human conflict ever known. The Handbook of World War II shows exactly how it took shape, from its beginnings in the confused politics of the 1920s and 1930s to its apocalyptic end in the ruined and shattered cities of Germany and Japan in 1945.

The Handbook of World War II shows how and why the war was fought and what happened to the ordinary men and women caught up in it. For some it brought out reserves of courage and endurance they never knew they possessed, but for others it became a terrifying inferno that led mankind to the depths of hell.
