Despite the numerous books on World War II, until now there has been no one-volume survey that was both objective and comprehensive. Previous volumes have usually been written from an exclusively British or American point of view, or have ignored the important causes and consequences of the War.

A Short History of World War II is essentially a military history, but it reaches from the peace settlements of World War I to the drastically altered postwar world of the late 1940's. Lucidly written and eminently readable, it is factual and accurate enough to satisfy professional historians. A Short History of World War II will appeal equally to the general reader, the veteran who fought in the War, and the student interested in understanding the contemporary political world.

About the Author:

James L. Stokesbury is the author of A Short History of World War I, A Short History of World War II, A Short History of the Korean War, and A Short History of the American Revolution. Before his death in 1995 he was a professor of history at Acadia University in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Review:

"We have needed this kind of book for a long time . . . It tells people just what they need to know about the war . . . It is an awfully good book." -- Theodore Ropp, Professor of History, Duke University, author of "War in the Modern World""It is, above all else, a balanced account of World War II . . . Dr. Stokesbury's one-volume history is by far the best short account of the war yet published." -- Thaddeus V. Tuleja, Professor of History, St. Peter's College (Jersey City, N.J.), author of "Climax at Midway"
