The Ordeal of Total War: 1939-1945

“. . . a distinguished achievement which conveys a convincing picture of what total war means, or rather what it meant before the H-bomb added a new dimension.” — New York Review of Books

The Second World War’s destructive impact on the continent of Europe probably exceeds that of any previous disaster in the modern era. This volume is concerned with a brief six-year period. Wright, having mastered a vast amount of diffuse literature on WWII, has put his own stimulating interpretations on a difficult and complicated subject. The book goes far beyond the usual military chronicle. It is a splendid synthesis of a tragic phase of recent European history.
