The second edition has been revised and updated to reflect the needs of the current specifications.

By adopting a chronological approach, the author highlights clearly how events unfolded and interacted with each other to lead to the most destructive war in human history.

Throughout the book key dates, terms and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined.
