Summary
A leading historian re-examines World War II and its outcome. Davies asks readers to reconsider what they know about World War II, and how the received wisdom might be biased or incorrect. He poses simple questions that have complicated and unexpected answers. For instance, Can you name the five biggest battles of the war in Europe? Or, What were the main political ideologies that were contending for supremacy? The answers to these and other questions--and the implications of those answers--will surprise even those who feel that they are experts on the subject.--From publisher description
