9780340720264: Allies in War: Britain and America against the Axis Powers, 1940-1945 (A Hodder Arnold Publication)

Allies in War offers a complete diplomatic and military history of the Second World War, as it was fought by the United States and Britain. Award-winning historian Mark Stoler examines the war these two powers fought in the European and Far Eastern theatres against Germany, Italy and Japan and the nature of the Churchill-Roosevelt "special relationship."
Stoler emphasizes the unprecedented co-operation between Britain and the USA but also undermines the standard Churchillian view of the essential smoothness of this process. There were many, often substantial, disagreements between the two allies, and occasionally formal agreement masked continuing dispute in practice.
This is a fully rounded history of the British-American effort and makes compelling reading for those who want to understand the intricacies and complexities of this unique relationship. A close examination of the British and American experience of WW2.

Review:


"Allies in War is an excellent reminder of the difficulties of coalition war-fare."--Parameters


"Allies in War offers an accessible and gracefully written synthesis of the wealth of new and important scholarship produced over the last quarter century addressing American and British grand strategy during World War II.... Allies in War is a versatile work with a lot of uses. Both students and professionals will find rewards. This volume will be an excellent tool for teaching survey and elective history courses. It will also aid in understanding the dynamics that attend coalition warfare."--James Jay Carafano, The Journal of American History


"This volume on World War II is a decided tour de force. Within less than three hundred pages, Stoler provides an excellent and readable overview on a global scale of the interrelated wartime military, strategic, and diplomatic decisions and contributions of the United States and Great Britain."--Priscilla Roberts, Military Review
