About this book
The history of the Second World War is often told as a grand narrative, as if fought by supermen, or decided by fate. This account, however, is told at a more practical and clear-cut level, by one of the world's bestselling historians. Published to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Casablanca Conference, and perfect for readers of Ian Kershaw.
Written by the author of The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers, this title offers a fresh account of how the tide was turned against the Nazis by the Allies in the Second World War. It focuses on the problem-solvers - Major-General Perry Hobart; Flight Lieutenant Ronnie Harker; and, Captain 'Johnny' Walker.
