The Second World WarBook - 1997
This title provides comprehensive coverage of important elements of the war on all major fronts. An overall view is given of how the war was fought and won on land, sea and air. The treatment of these aspects analyzes the most features of the campaigns whilst allowing pupils to appreciate the human dimension behind these events. The chapters on the Home Front focus on the impact of the war on Britain - both from the perspective of ordinary individuals and society as a whole. This impact is analyzed both in immediate terms and from the point of view of the longer term significance of the war for British society. The roles of key individuals such as Chamberlain and Churchill are analyzed, providing pupils with the opportunity to make their own judgements on the interpretations offered.
