    The Second World War lasted for 2,174 days, cost $1.5 trillion, and claimed the lives of more than 50 million people. Why did the Axis lose? And could they, with a different strategy, have won? Andrew Roberts's acclaimed new history has been hailed as the finest single-volume account of this epic conflict. From the western front to North Africa, from the Baltic to the Far East, he tells the story of the war - the grand strategy and the individual experience, the cruelty and the heroism - as never before.

    Mike From Mesa says: "A very interesting book with some shortcomings."
    "A lively retelling of the Second World War"

    Story

    It’s hard to imagine anyone writing anything new about the Second World War, but Roberts keeps his account lively with unfamiliar anecdotes of both warlords and common people. It is also full of telling reminders of episodes we would rather forget, such as this: “Vichy implemented anti-Jewish measures even before it was requested by Berlin, partly to keep the advantages of property confiscation.” Christian Rodska, whose voice sounds like that of a distinguished Oxford don, gives a bravura performance as narrator, with his flawless pronunciation of German and French names, and his spot-on recreation of Churchill. Highly recommended.
