Cambridge Univ Pr
A survey of all aspects of World War II from a global perspective, based on new archival information.
Widely hailed as a masterpiece, this is the first history of World War II to provide a truly global account of the war that encompassed six continents. Starting with the changes that restructured Europe and her colonies following the First World War, Gerhard Weinberg sheds new light on every facet of World War II. Actions of the Axis, the Allies, and the Neutrals are covered in every theater of the war. More importantly, the global nature of the war is examined, with new insight into how events in one corner of the world helped affect events in other distant parts. A World at Arms is a fascinating account of the Second World War and the world that the war reshaped. Gerhard L. Weinberg was born in Germany and spent the first year of World War II in England. After serving in the U.S. army of occupation in Japan, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. Professor Weinberg worked on Columbia University's War Documentation project and directed the American Historical Association's program for the microfilming of captured German documents. He is the author of numerous books and articles on the origins and the course of the war, including the prize-winning two-volume study The Foreign Policy of Hitler's Germany.
