255 pp, 11 3/4" H. Over 200 maps/battle plans in shades of black, white and red. "(T)his book provides a continuous, chronological narrative, linking the theatres and showing how each affected the others, and the way in which the protagonists were forced to adjust the deployment of armies and resources between them. Each two-page spread describes and maps a particular phase in the conflict, linking its position in the order of events to previous and subsequent topics. Graphic keys supply at-a-glance locations in time and place, while a cursor bar shows the phase of the overall conflict. The maps have been designed to complement and amplify the chronological text, presenting not only the main events but also showing peripheral and incidental information to aid the reader in forming a clear picture of the course of the war. Areas depicted have been chosen with care, to include all the zones and their implicit factors that impinged upon the decision-making of the com-manders in the field as well as their political masters. As a narrative, graphic history of the Second World War, this book will provide new insights for the expert as well as a uniquely comprehensible overview for the layman." Section headings: Introduction; The Legacy of the First World War; Just a European War; Britain Alone; Hitler Turns East; The Dark Before the Dawn; Tide on the Turn; Slowly But Surley; Europe Re-Entered; Liberation; Closing In; Victory in Europe; The Ultimate Weapon; The Legacy; Further Reading; Index. Minor wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket is price-clipped.
