9780140249095: Total War: Causes and Courses of the Second World War : The Greater East Asia and Pacific Conflict (rev. 2nd ed.)

In the original 1972 edition of "Total War", the authors demonstrated why World War II happened, and how it was conducted, giving as much stress and space to political, social and moral forces as to ensuing clashes of arms, not forgetting the considerable part that intelligence reconnaissance played in the war. This new edition takes into account new evidence that has come to light, especially from British sources, as, under the Thirty Year Rule, many official war documents are no longer confidential. Peter Calvocoressi has therefore rewritten much of the Western hemisphere section of the book in the light of this new evidence. An examination of the causes and courses of World War II. This edition takes account of the flood of official archives and personal memoirs that have been made public in recent years. These have necessitated a review of the policies of appeasement in Europe and Japan in the 1930s. For the war itself, Peter Calvocoressi has woven into his narrative the story of the broken Enigma ciphers that he was not allowed to tell in the first edition. John Pritchard, using his knowledge of the pre-war problems and policies of the Powers in East Asia and the proceedings at the Japanese war crimes
