Review:

"In his previous books... Holland combined a lively style with fresh insights based on deep historical research. Those qualities shine through this new account" ( Literary Review)

"Though it is such a well-known story, it has never been told in such depth before. James Holland has mastered every detail" ( Daily Mail)

"Holland tells the story with gusto and pace... he has truly and brilliantly plugged an enormous gap" ( Mail on Sunday)

From the Publisher:

The Second World War is the most cataclysmic event in recent European history. In this new history of the War in the West, historian James Holland looks at the conflict from a broader perspective than ever before, and in doing so, challenges some of the fundamentals of its by-now familiar story.

The first part of this extraordinary new two-volume account spans oceans and continents from the perspectives of all the nations it will engulf. Holland’s epic narrative takes us from the opening salvoes to the astonishing early German victories, from the fjords and mountains of Norway to the grey swell of the Atlantic, and from the corridors of power to the islands of the Mediterranean and the deserts of North Africa.

By examining the war on land, in the air and on sea, Holland is able to reveal the events behind the events, and demonstrate that, with the vast industrial mobilization which took place, this was not just military history, but political and economic history too. His guides through this immense human drama are the people who helped to make history, who fought and shaped the war as it evolved: the politicians, industrialists, generals, ordinary fighting men and women, and civilians too.

Drawing on more than a dozen years of research that has taken him around the world visiting archives, battlefields, and interviewing many of those who fought and lived through that conflict, James Holland has not only recreated a monumental event in all its terrible and majestic glory, but he has also written an account that will redefine our understanding of the war itself.

Descripción Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 243 x 166 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Are you ready for the truth about World War Two? The Second World War is the most cataclysmic and violent sequence of events in recent times. But for the past seven decades, our understanding of it has relied upon conventional wisdom, propaganda and an interpretation skewed by the information available. James Holland has spent over twelve years conducting new research, interviewing survivors, visiting battlefields and archives that have never before been so accessible and challenging too-long-held assumptions about the war that shaped our world. In Germany Ascendant, the first part of this ground-breaking new history, James Holland introduces the war, beginning with the lead-up to its outbreak in 1939 and taking us up to mid-1941 as the Nazis prepared to unleash Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of Russia. To tell the real story, he weaves together the experiences of dozens of individuals, from civilians and soldiers, to sailors, pilots, leading military strategists, industrialists and heads of state, and uncovers the strategy, tactics and events that informed not only the military aspects of the war but also the economic, political, and social aspects too. The War in the West is a truly monumental history of the war on land, in the air, and at sea. In it, James Holland has created a captivating and epic narrative which redefines and enhances our understanding of one of the most significant conflicts in history.
