The very scale of the 1939–45 war has often tempted historians to study particularcampaigns at the expense of the wider panorama. In this readable and richly detailedhistory of the conflict, the Belgian scholar Ernest Mandel (author of the acclaimed LateCapitalism) outlines his view that the war was in fact a combination of several distinctstruggles and a battle between rival imperialisms for world hegemony. In concisechapters, Mandel examines the role played by technology, science, logistics, weaponsand propaganda. Throughout, he weaves a consideration of the military strategy of theopposing states into his analytical narrative of the war and its results.
