History of the Second World Warby Basil Henry Liddell Hart
History of the Second World War, B. H. Liddell Hart's last work, abounds with controversial judgments, including assertions about the true causes behind France's defeat in 1940 and Japan's stunning victory at Pearl Harbor; the questionable necessity of detonating atom bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki; and much more. This monumental history is both a crowning achievement and a final summation by one of the greatest military thinkers of the twentieth century.
