Written by a team of leading historians under the expert guidance of Richard Overy, this book covers everything from Japanese aggression against China in the early 1930s to the transition from World War to Cold War in the late 1940s. It outlines the genesis of war, the major theatres of conflict, the economics of total war, the fighting power of the combatants, genocide, the culture of war, and the experience of war for both combatants and civilians. It explores the course of the war not just in terms of the Allied response but also from the viewpoint of the Axis aggressor states. [publisher]
