Description - Causes, Course and Outcomes of World War Two by John Plowright

In the longer perspective, even the most momentous events can appear to lose coherence and significance. However, such was the impact of World War Two that even more than sixty years after its end, interest in the origins, course and consequences of the war continues to increase and generate debate.In this essential introductory guide, John Plowright casts a critical eye over the mass of literature that surrounds the conflict, focusing on key topics such as:- Nazi foreign policy and appeasement- the Fall of France- Operation Barbarossa and the Allied strategic bombing offensive- the impact of the war on Britain's international position and on American society- the movement towards European integration.This timely book provides an approachable synthesis of the scholarship relating to the causes, course and outcomes of the Second World War. It is ideal for all those in danger of drowning in the ocean of print on the subject and who wish to gain an understanding of the central issues and debates.
