World War Two : A Short History Paperback
by Norman Stone
A pacy, compelling and penetrating account - from the great Norman Stone'The best short primer on the war in twenty years' Andrew RobertsNorman Stone's gripping book tells the narrative of the Second World War in as brief a compass as possible, making a sometimes familiar story utterly fresh and arresting.
As with his highly acclaimed World War One: A Short History, there is a compelling sense of a terrible story unfolding, of a sceptical and humorous intelligence at work, and a wish to convey to an audience who may well have no memory of the conflict just how high the stakes were.
