9780330237703: History of the Second World War

The best-selling account of World War II in every theater of operations by the foremost military analyst of our time. The late Captain Basil Liddell Hart's private library and famous and voluminous archives of personal correspondence with such giants as Lloyd George and Churchill; the notes of the detailed interviews which he conducted after the war with the captured German generals, as well as with the leading Allied commanders who had so often turned to him for inspiration and advice; the subject files and private papers placed in his hands by many of his great contemporaries-all constitute that priceless personal collection of private documents upon which the present magnificent work is based. It is military history in the broadest possible scale, ranging from the frustrating events preceding the war, through all the campaigns and battles of seven turbulent years, to the final conclusion of hostilities. Trenchant, searching, thought-provoking, it is a study in realism and object analysis, uncluttered by self-deception. Cherished illusions fade under fresh surveillance; long-held beliefs of justification fail under new questioning; reputations are reexamined by one of the most incisive minds of our time; judgments of our past are made lessons for our present and our future.

About the Author:

Sir Basil Liddell Hart (1895-1970) was the greatest military thinker of the twentieth century, whose ideas revolutionized the art of war. A student at Cambridge University at the outbreak of World War I, he joined the army and rose to the rank of captain. He retired from the army in 1927 to devote his time to writing. He was military correspondent for the Daily Telegraph and adviser on defense to The London Times, and military editor of the Encyclopedia Britannica. He lectured at Cambridge and served as personal adviser to War Minister Leslie Hore-Belisha in the reorganization of the British Army in the run-up to World War II. He was the author of more than thirty books and had an enormous influence on military thinking about mechanized warfare.
