"Many World War II books require numerous volumes and thousands of pages. But by marching across huge spans of time and territory with the eye of a determined battlefield soldier, British historian Roberts packs the whole war into one 768-page volume."--"The New York Post"

"Roberts gives readers a new, well-written retelling of the spectacular ebb and flow of World War II. . . .A well-sourced and well-told introduction for general readers that will also be enjoyed by those in the know."--"Library Journal" (starred review)

"A magnificent book. . . . It manages to be distinctive but not eccentric, comprehensive in scope but not cramped by detail, giving due weight both to the extraordinary personalities and to the blind economic and physical forces involved."--"The Economist"

"Roberts underscores the factors that affected the war's outcome and raises a number of intriguing questions. . . . Accessible, meticulously researched, and executed with clarity."--"The Tucson Citizen"

"Andrew Roberts's latest offering is a sparkling addition to the groaning shelves. Roberts offers refreshing judgments on the politicians and commanders in lively prose and his denunciation of the murder of millions of Jews is as measured as it is moving."--Robert Service, "The Observer"

"Roberts's book is tightly written, every page packed with terse comment, well-organised facts and, often, telling details. Engrossing to read."--Paul Johnson, "The Spectator"

"A concise but comprehensive history that gets to the heart of one mankind's greatest struggles. . . . Thanks to Roberts's mastery of substance, style, and, yes, statistics, readers can now enjoy a one-volume history of that war that is far superior to most of the works preceding it."--"The American Spectator"

"Roberts has produced a lucid narrative stream that makes his book flow like a novel. I couldn't put it down."--"The Shreveport Times"

"This is history as it should be written. Award-winning historian Roberts, a master storyteller, combines a comprehensive command of sources, a sophisticated analytical dimension, and fingertip balance between great events and their personal dimensions."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

Gripping....splendid history. A brilliantly clear and accessible account of the war in all its theaters. Roberts s prose is unerringly precise and strikingly vivid. It is hard to imagine a better-told military history of World War II. --Timothy Snyder, The New York Times Book Review"

Reseña del editor:

A comprehensive history of World War II analyzes the factors that affected the war's outcome and presents stories of many little-known individuals whose experiences displayed the epitome of courage and self-sacrifice.
