9780521852548: Visions of Victory: The Hopes of Eight World War II Leaders

Visions of Victory explores the views of eight war leaders of the major powers of World War II - Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo, Chiang Kai-shek, Stalin, Churchill, de Gaulle, and Roosevelt - and compares their visions of the future assuming their side had emerged victorious. While the leaders primarily focused their attention on the strategy for fighting and winning the war, these very decisions were often shaped by their aspirations and hopes for the future. Weinberg assesses how subsequent events were impacted by these decisions and examines how these visions for the future changed and evolved throughout the war.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Weinberg's study offers fascinating insights into the views of eight leaders of the major powers of World War II: Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo, Chiang Kai-shek, Stalin, Churchill, de Gaulle and Roosevelt. He compares their visions of the future in the event of victory, creating a startling picture of imagined post-war worlds. After exterminating the Jews, Hitler intended for all Slavs to die so that Germans could inhabit Eastern Europe. Mussolini and Hitler wanted extensive colonies in Africa. Churchill hoped for the re-emergence of British and French empires. De Gaulle wanted to annex the northwest corner of Italy and expand, not just restore, French colonies. Stalin aimed to control Eastern Europe. Japan intended to seize Alaska, western Canada and Washington State. Roosevelt's vision included establishing the United Nations. Weinberg demonstrates that imagined outcomes are essential to understanding World War II's actual result. It is based on deep knowledge and profound judgment. It is a masterpiece of historical writing that should be read by anyone interested in the origins of the world in which we live. FINANCIAL TIMES. Bookseller Inventory # 1310
