World War Two

A Short History



The Second World War is the nightmare that sits at the heart of the modern era; a refutation of any notion of human progress that haunts us seventy years on. Norman Stone's gripping book tells the narrative of the war in as brief a compass as possible, making sometimes familiar events 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.
