The War in the West: A New History

Volume One: Germany Ascendant 1939–1941

James Holland

The Second World War was the most devastating conflict in history, yet for seven decades our understanding of it has relied on conventional wisdom based on partial information. This first volume of James Holland's monumental study draws on newly accessible archives and interviews with soldiers, civilians, military strategists and heads of state to create a narrative that redresses the balance. Previously in Postscript as The Rise of Germany 1939–1941: The War in the West – Volume One.
