9780026119702: The Dark Summer: An Intimate History of the Events that Led to World War II
From Library Journal:

Experienced historian Smith details the personalities and events of the summer of 1939 as the world was drawn into a war that no one but Adolf Hitler wanted. England, Germany, and Russia are the focus; memories of prominent and "ordinary" folk are interwoven to give the feel of the time. Step by painful step, this account moves from the death of Czechoslovakia to the Russo-German pact to the intimidation, then destruction, of Poland. Although Smith adds mothing new, his evocation of the elegiac mood of a doomed society is quite readable. Recommended for most libraries. Pat Ensor, Indiana State Univ. Lib., Terre Haute
