An edited volume of primary sources from the Second World War, The World in Flames: A World War II Sourcebook is the first of its kind to provide an ambitious and wide-ranging survey of the war in a convenient and comprehensive package. Conveying the sheer scale and reach of the conflict, the book's twelve chapters include sufficient narrative and analysis to enable students to grasp both the war's broad outlines and the context and significance of each particular source.

Beginning with the growing disenchantment over the World War I peace settlements and the determination of German, Italian, and Japanese leaders to revise the situation, the book traces the descent into open, armed conflict. It covers the spectacular early successes of the Germans and Japanese, the pivotal campaigns of 1942, and the Allied effort during the remaining three years to destroy the Axis' capacity to wage war. Drawing examples from a wide range of documents, the text also includes visual sources: propaganda posters, photos, and cartoons.

About the Author:


Both Frans Coetzee and Marilyn Shevin-Coetzee have taught at Yale and George Washington Universities and earned fellowships from the ACLS, Alexander von Humboldt, Fulbright and Mellon Foundations, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton,and the NEH. They are the authors or editors of five books and numerous articles and maintain a website on world history, www.history4everyone.com.

Review:


The World in Flames will serve as a very useful guide for students to identify and locate useful primary documents (in English translation, and in published form), and would also serve as a springboard of ideas and issues that could be researched for an undergraduate project. Those of us who teach European (or other non-US fields) history are quite familiar with the inevitable challenges facing American undergraduates who wish to conduct primary research in non-US (or English-speaking) areas.

-Mark Gingerich, Ohio Wesleyan


"This is an imaginative, comprehensive, and urgently needed collection of primary sources relating to all aspects of the Second World War, ably selected by the authors of an equally valuable collection of World War I sources."--Paul Jankowski, Brandeis University


I enjoyed reading The World In Flames, and even learned some things myself. It is well written, and gives an uncommonly broad picture of the sweeping conflict. Students will certainly know after reading this book that there was more to the Second World War than they ever realized.

-John D. Long, Roanoke College


"This is a very well-crafted and comprehensive collection, a worthy successor to the Coetzee's volume on World War I. There is a good distribution of different kinds of documents, and the excerpts are well-chosen and succinct."--Leonard V. Smith, Oberlin College


"Overall, I am really favorably impressed by the depth of the coverage, the breadth of the scope, and the easy-to-use format. The best aspect of the work is its global coverage. . . . These sources can help students understand the war not simply as the European Theater and the Pacific Theater, but as an integrated global conflict the history of which continues to resound today."--Adam Seipp, Texas A&M University
