Synopsis:

World War II defined the 20th century and shaped many events, from the decolonization of Africa to the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall. This encyclopedia offers a focused overview of this complex and volatile era, the circumstances that led up to war, the underlying causes, its unfolding and consequences. The text emphasizes the operations in Eastern Europe and Russia. There is a section that inspects all the major weapons, with handy tables for easy comparison. And in recognition of the first large-scale participation of women in war, the volume thoroughly documents their individual and unit contributions to the Allied effort. Finally, the encyclopedia discusses battlefield realities that explain, for example, why airborne drops at Normandy suceeded and the ones at Arnheim failed decolonization of Africa to the rise and fall of the Berl in Wall.
