Overview

The The Palgrave Concise Historical Atlas of the Second World War by Martin Folly

The Palgrave Concise Atlas of World War II presents a wide range of chapters on the military campaigns, major political developments, frontier changes, international conferences and alliances of World War II, together with chapters on the home fronts in the major participating nations and in occupied Europe and Asia (the latter covering, for instance, resistance, population movements and genocide). Chapters covering the military campaigns also focus on recent discoveries, in particular the role of signals intelligence and code-breaking. The result is a comprehensive atlas covering all the major aspects of the war and presenting the military events in their full context.
