From the PublisherThe World in Flames will serve as a very useful guide for students to identify and locate useful primary documents (in English translation, and in published form), and would also serve as a springboard of ideas and issues that could be researched for an undergraduate project. Those of us who teach European (or other non-US fields) history are quite familiar with the inevitable challenges facing American undergraduates who wish to conduct primary research in non-US (or English-speaking) areas.

"This is an imaginative, comprehensive, and urgently needed collection of primary sources relating to all aspects of the Second World War, ably selected by the authors of an equally valuable collection of World War I sources."—Paul Jankowski, Brandeis University
I enjoyed reading The World In Flames, and even learned some things myself. It is well written, and gives an uncommonly broad picture of the sweeping conflict. Students will certainly know after reading this book that there was more to the Second World War than they ever realized.
-John D. Long, Roanoke College
"This is a very well-crafted and comprehensive collection, a worthy successor to the Coetzee's volume on World War I. There is a good distribution of different kinds of documents, and the excerpts are well-chosen and succinct."—Leonard V. Smith, Oberlin College
"Overall, I am really favorably impressed by the depth of the coverage, the breadth of the scope, and the easy-to-use format. The best aspect of the work is its global coverage. . . . These sources can help students understand the war not simply as the European Theater and the Pacific Theater, but as an integrated global conflict the history of which continues to resound today."—Adam Seipp, Texas A&M University
