Why the Allies Won by Richard Overy

In this incisive analysis, we see exactly how the Allies won in WWII & regained military superiority & why they were able to do it. Overy offers a brilliant analysis of the decisive campaigns: the war at sea, the crucial battles on the eastern front, the air war, & the vast amphibious assault on Europe. The eastern front was critical. Having lost four million men & tens of thousands of tanks & aircraft in the first six months of fighting, the Soviet Union was able to relocate its industrial base to the east, intensify its industrial production, & defeat the German forces at Stalingrad & Kursk; this was the turning point. Maps. B&W photos.
