Overview

The History of World War II describes in depth the events and participants of the major war of the twentieth century, a war that saw almost fifty million soldiers and civilians die, and dwarfed its predecessor of 1914-18 in terms of the misery and destruction it caused for mankind. The book explores every major event and action of the war: the early lightning advances of the Germans in Europe and the Japanese in Asia; the entry of the United States and the USSR into the war with the attacks on Pearl Harbor and the Soviet Union itself respectively; the turn of the tide at the battles of Stalingrad, Midway and El Alamein; the collapse of the Axis powers after D-Day and the capture of Iwo Jima; and the end of the war after the death of Hitler and the dropping of the Atomic bomb.
