Originally published as All Hell Let Loose, this hardback edition of Max Hastings's ambitious work examines the Second World War, in all theatres of conflict around the world, in one epic volume. Concentrating on the experiences of ordinary people rather than the generals and politicians, Hastings explains the essential strategic developments while using the diaries and letters of military and civilian participants to build up a picture of the human experience of the war. Published in the UK as All Hell Let Loose (also available in Postscript). Slightly off-mint. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge. American-cut pages.
