9780199734733: Annihilation: A Global Military History of World War II

From 1937 to 1945 the world witnessed a succession of savage military strategies and actions on land, in the seas, and in the skies that resulted in the slaughter of more than 50 million people. Incorporating the most recent scholarship on the military history of the Second World War, this study offers a chronological and geographical examination of the most destructive event in recorded human history.

Annihilation argues that World War II evolved into a war of annihilation--a total war--that engulfed militants and civilians alike. The book challenges the "good war" thesis by showing that the "strategy of annihilation" was employed by all sides in the conflict. Moving from the onset of hostilities to the final days of battle, the narrative provides a global perspective that links all theaters of the war. Ideal for undergraduate courses on World War II, this uniquely organized text is the first to allow instructors to assign chapters according to time periods or by region.

About the Author:


Tom Zeiler is a Professor of History and International Affairs, and former chair, at the University of Colorado at Boulder where he also directs the Global Studies Residential Academic Program. He serves as the executive editor of Diplomatic History and as the editor-in-chief of American Foreign Relations Since 1600: A Guide to the Literature, as well as on SHAFR's Teaching Committee and governing Council. A member of the State Department Historical Advisory Committee, Tom has lived in Buenos Aires and Tokyo as a Senior Fulbright Scholar. He is the author of six books, including one on the last half of the Pacific War, and several articles.

Review:


"Zeiler successfully strikes a balance between the details of specific battles and campaigns and the larger picture. He also avoids the clichés that tend to appear in the military histories of World War II. . . . Zeiler has written an impressive synthesis that does an excellent job of bringing together the complex elements of the war."--Phillip Payne, St. Bonaventure University


"Annihilation does a great job of providing a readable, coherent, and accessible narrative. . . . It also presents forceful arguments and theses throughout-and whether you agree with them or not, they provide plenty of food for thought. I like the 'you were there' feel of this book."--Hugh Dubruelle, Saint Anselm College
