Summary
This volume captures the drama and pathos of the major battles as well as the war's key moments, including Adolf Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union, the Allies' adoption of "Europe first" strategy, and the anguished decision to use the atomic bomb. It divides the war into four phases that help the reader understand the causes and the results of the war's pivotal events. It tells the history of mankind's greatest catastrophe in 23 insightful essays and more than 800 compelling photographs of the war's key figures, the unknown soldiers who fought the battles, and the unfortunate civilians who lived amongst the carnage
