WW II was the greatest disaster in the history of civilization, and today it is receiving renewed attention, more than 50 years later.
John Keegan has chosen to treat the war periodically and thematically. He presents it as a competition in problem solving, and arranges each theatre of war according to the "strategic dilemma" it presents. He analyzes five crucial battles: Crete (airborne), Midway (carriers), Falaise (tanks), Berlin (city warfare) and Okinawa (amphibious).
His accounts alternate from the concerns of the leaders for the implementation of their battle plans to the more immediate concerns of men in the line, how to bear up under the strain, danger and fear.
"Truly magnificent in the scope of its coverage and the quality of its exposition. Another dazzling effort from the best military historian of our generation." --Tom Clancy
