A magisterial, single-volume history of the greatest conflict the world has ever known by one of our foremost military historians. It really is a huge pleasure to welcome Antony Beevor to Bath. With previous works including Stalingrad, Berlin, and D-Day, he now examines the most earth-shattering of modern European conflicts in a new work, The Second World War. With his usual sharp-eyed gaze and concise, intelligent prose, Antony considers the causes, events and ramifications of World War Two in a stunning single-volume history. This promises to be a fascinating and eye-opening evening. The Second World War is a tremendous book that immerses the reader in warfare on a grand scale through the fortunes of individuals caught up in the conflict.
