REVIEW – Britain’s War: A New World, 1942 – 1947

Like the first volume, Britain’s War is not a military history, although the great battles of the war are described in some detail. It is not a political history either, though there is much analysis of political arguments. Nor is it an economic history, although it includes much economics.

REVIEW – Dresden: the fire and the darkness
