World War II was the most devastating conflict in human history, and we are still living in its aftermath. Yet seven decades later, very few still remember the war firsthand, a distance that allows historians to think differently about how to describe it, how to explain its course, and what to focus on when considering the wartime experience. The author of Why the Allies Won and the Wolfson Prize winner The Dictators: Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Russia here leads a team of historians in re-assessing World War II for a new generation, exploring the course of the war not just in terms of the Allied response but also from the viewpoint of the Axis aggressor states.

"Do we really need another illustrated history of WWII? Yes, we do, especially this volume, which combines a breadth and depth not seen in much military history writing. The skillful analysis of each chapter does not sacrifice narrative ability to address topics ranging from the German, Italian, and Japanese conduct of the land, sea, and air wars to the political intricacies of the Grand Alliance, scientific innovation, and the cultural history of the war."—Choice
