Contents:
Front Cover; Essential Histories: The Second World War (2) Europe 1939-1943; Copyright Page; Contents; Introduction; Chronology; Background to war The gathering storm; Warring sides The road to war; Outbreak 'I have determined on a solution by force'; The fighting Hitler strikes; Portrait of a soldier Donald Edgar; World around war The home front; Portrait of a civilian Colin Perry; How this period of the war ended The end of the beginning; Conclusion and consequences A world at war; Further reading; Index
Summary: While many of the participants were the same as the First World War, this conflict was far more than a re-match of 1914-1918. The Second World War was even more destructive than the first and the added ideological element meant that this war was far more cruel. This book details the first four years of the war in Europe. It discusses how and why Hitler's resurgent Germany plunged into war, and examines the German successes against Poland, France, and the Low Countries.
