9780192802071: The Second World War: A Short History (Struggle for Survival)
Críticas:

Review from previous edition Based on a matchless knowledge of the documents, he provides an authoritative treatment of military, diplomatic, and economic aspects, written with great force and insight. As a one-volume survey, it is unlikely to be surpassed... a magnificent achievement, a tour de force. ( Kenneth O. Morgan, New Statesman and Society)

a miracle of compression compared with the rest of the horde of general histories. ( Guardian)

Parker alights unerringly on the salient campaigns and issues, and considers them with consistent style and insight. ( Times Educational Supplement)

The most balanced view of the causes and courses of the Second World War. ( Field Marshal Lord Carver, Times Literary Supplement)

written in clear and elegant English ... a masterful account of the Second World War in all its different spheres. It is scrupulously fair, illuminated by an engaging sense of humour ... and gives an entirely balanced view of the varying contributions of the different powers engaged. ( Richard Cobb, The Spectator)

Faced with volume after volume of books about the Second World War, R.A.C. Parker's Short History comes as a breath of fresh air ... it is refreshing to read such a modest-sized yet absorbing history of the years between 1939 and 1945 and what happened before and afer. A Short History is both concise and absorbing - an "introduction" to anyone wanting to know more about the war and an example of how a taut history book can be captivating. ( Madeleine Burton, Herts Adverstiser (St Albans Edition))

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Rev ed.. 193 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Second World War is a compact but comprehensive and absorbing history of the war. It examines the causes of the war, how it was won and lost, and its far-reaching consequences for humanity. In tracing the key events of both the European and the Far Eastern wars, R. A. C. Parker outlines clearly the strategies of the participants, the economies and societies that underlay them, and the strengths and weaknesses of their fighting forces. He describes the decisive battles and analyses the reasons for their outcome, paying close attention to special features of the war: mobile warfare, forced migration, the Holocaust, strategic and nuclear bombing. Unlike many other histories of the war this book places British and European involvement squarely in an international perspective, and the author never shies away from raising fundamental questions.
