Über diesen Titel


The author brings to life every major campaign fought by the British Army in the Second World War: from the momentous defeats in France, Belgium and the Far East in the early stages of the war, through to the final victories against Germany and Japan in 1945. All aspects of the conflict are described, from grand strategy at the highest levels right down to the experience of infantry, gunners and tankers in the field as the British army battled its way through the war. The book shows how the seeds of World War II were sown at the end of the previous war, twenty-one years earlier, and how successive governments in the twenties and thirties failed to safeguard Britain from the building threat from Germany. It describes how by the beginning of the conflict Hitler's armies were superior in every respect. But as the catalogue of defeats mounted, the British army were learning hard lessons, and painfully acquiring the skills needed to turn the tables. It is therefore a story which moves from triumph to tragedy, and then upward again to triumph at the last.


First published in 1983 and written by a pre-eminent historian of the British Army, this is the definitive history of the British Army in the Second World War: its campaigns and battles, defeats and victories, across all theatres of operations from the outbreak of war with Germany in 1939 to the final defeat of Japan in 1945. Here the reader will find grand strategy at the highest level, but also the reality of command in the field and the experience of combat for the infantry, gunners and the tankers as the British Army fought its way through the War. But above all this is a full, authoritative and vividly written account of the British Army in the Second World War as it came to grips with, and in the end triumphed over, its enemies in the field.
