Synopsis

First published in the year after his death in 1970, Liddell Hart's History of the Second World War is a classic military tome from one of the best military strategists of his generation. With his distinctive voice, he covers the most famous of all wars with seering insight and authorative knowledge of tactics and strategy. Few have attempted to condense those six bloody years into one volumne, and Liddell's Hart's achievement is a true classic now republished in the Pan Military Strategy Series.

'It is a work of great length and great learning, illuminated by flashes of insight ... full of brilliant strategic analysis' A.J.P. Taylor

'A work of art ... Liddell Hart is not simply a prophet and a critic but a historian of great rank' Economist
