In the history of human existence, no conflict has cratered the earth, its people and their ways of living like World War II. The battles that blazed across the globe from the late 1930s until 1945 caused more than sixty million deaths.

This writing aspires to present the tale of World War II in a concise yet digestible fashion, and to stimulate the reader to delve further into its history. In addition to the “What, Where and When” of war, it is appropriate to consider what forces and flaws contributed to the war’s emergence. This book begins with a review of the events and circumstances that gave birth to the conflict. Then comes a discussion of the war’s action in every significant theater of combat.

The book closes with the human and economic costs of the conflict, an evaluation of the intended and unintended consequences of World War II, and ethical questions the war has brought to the surface.
