Overview

Battles Lost & Won: Great Campaigns of World War II by Hanson W. Baldwin

The military editor and analyst of the New York Times evaluates eleven crucial battles of the Second World War, analyzing what happened in each and why, as well as the larger results. Describing his purpose in this volume, Mr. Baldwin says: "The eleven selected battles present a cross-section of the world's greatest war--from the Polish campaign, where blitzkrieg was born, to Okinawa, 'the last battle,' where kamikaze portended the coming menace of the missile. Each battle described was, in fact, more than a battle; each was so extensive in time and space and comprised so many separate episodes of struggle that each transcended the older meaning of the world 'battle' and was, in essence, a campaign. Yet each was an entity; many were a turning point; upon some, the scales of history rested."
