The Second World War, Paperback / softback Book


In this comprehensive history, John Keegan explores both the technical and the human impact of the greatest war of all time.

He focuses on five crucial battles and offers new insights into the distinctive methods and motivations of modern warfare.

In knowledgable, perceptive analysis of the airborne battle of Crete, the carrier battle of Midway, the tank battle of Falaise, the city battle of Berlin, and the amphibious battle of Okinawa, Keegan illuminates the strategic dilemmas faced by the leaders and the consequences of their decisions on the fighting men and the course of the war as a whole.
