This first issue of World War II in Review is basically a primer on World War II, and is not meant to be an in-depth accounting. Many thousands of books and uncountable articles have been written over the years and the full history of the war has still not been covered, nor will it ever be.

World War II in Review will cover as much of the history of the war as possible: the campaigns, battles, home fronts, personalities, organizations, military units, weapons, aircraft, naval vessels, military vehicles, uniforms, insignia, equipment, and more, of the allied, axis and neutral nations. It is hoped that you will find this series informative and enjoyable in your study of the history of World War II.

The first in this series provides an introduction to the war, including events that led up to the war, a chronology of the war and more: 
  1. Foreword
  2. Chronology
  3. Timeline of Events Preceding World War II
  4. Events Preceding World War II in Asia
  5. Events Preceding World War II in Europe
  6. Diplomatic History of World War II
  7. Germany Between Two Wars
  8. The Peace Which Could Not Last: Why 1939 Had to Follow 1919
  9. U.S. Army Organization, 1941
  10. U.S. Government Policy Toward Civilian Women During World War II
  11. Allied Interoperability Between the Wars
  12. The First to Be Freed: British Military Administration in Eritrea and Somalia, 1941-1943
  13. Soviet-Japanese Confrontation in Outer Mongolia: The Battle of Nomonhan-Khalkin Gol
