This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: A photographic examination of World War II, largely from a British perspective. Only 20 years after World War I, the "war to end all wars", a second world war broke out in Europe in 1939 and spread rapidly around the globe, involving most of the world's nations and all of the great powers, who formed two opposing military power blocs: the Allies and the Axis. The former were led by the United Kingdom, the United States, and the Soviet Union; the primary members of the latter were Germany, Italy, and Japan. The most widespread war in history, World War II involved more than 100 million people who served in military units. Moreover, the major participants adopted a state of "total war" whereby the nation's entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities were dedicated to the war effort, removing the distinction between military and civilian resources. The widespread use of strategic bombing by both sides saw civilians targeted in their homes and at their workplaces, particularly in Britain, Germany, and Japan, leading to substantial death tolls. Moreover, mass exterminations of civilian populations by Germany and Japan produced a total number of fatalities that some estimates suggest reached 50 million, while others say that the number could be more than 70 million.
