Synopsis

In 1942, Germany controlled almost the entire resources of continental Europe and was poised to move into the Middle East. Japan had wiped out the Western colonial presence in East Asia and was threatening northern India and Australia. The Allied victory in 1945 has since come to seem inevitable. In Overy's incisive analysis, readers see exactly how the Allies regained military superiority and why they were able to do it.
