From the cover: No event has marked the history of mankind as dramatically as did the Second World War. Developing from an initially European struggle, the war eventually raged across sixty percent of the planet and involved the armies, navies and air forces of most of its nations. By its close at least fifty-four million people lay dead civilian men, women and children included and the lives of incalculable millions more had been affected.
This selection of over fifty representative land, sea and air battles has been compiled by a team of historians and provides a wealth of information that will be of immense interest to anyone fascinated by modern history. Fully illustrated with magnificent photographs and detailed maps, The World at War examines the major engagements that decided the outcome of the Second World War. From Russian steppes, Asian jungles and African deserts to the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, the Mediterranean islands and Western Europe, the course and the strategies of the battles on land, at sea and in the c!; are presented in a series of fascinating accounts that make absorbing reading.
