    Joe Maiolo explains, in fascinating detail, how the deadly game of the arms race was played out in the decade prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. He examines how nations reacted to the moves of their rivals, revealing the thinking of those making the key decisions - Hitler, Mussolini, Chamberlain, Stalin and Roosevelt - and the dilemmas of democratic leaders who seemed to be faced with a choice between defending their nations and preserving their democratic way of life.
