World War II: People, Politics, and Power


World War II was a very different war than had previously been fought in the course of history. New technologies and ideas were employed making way for widespread death and new atrocities. This book is a valuable resource that follows the war from the rise of Hitler to the dropping of the atomic bombs, through blitzkrieg and bombings, to the treaty that finally ended it all, noting the effects upon future world politics.
