Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungJohn Plowright presents the war as two distinct but overlapping conflicts (one European, the other Far Eastern), considering neither as merely a prelude to the Cold War, but critically examining their general impact and their relationship with that phenomenon. This timely textbook represents an approachable synthesis of the literature relating to the causes, course and outcomes of the Second World War, and is ideal for all those seeking a succinct introduction.
