Great Battles of World War II examines the political decisions, military strategy, and human cost of the war's bloodiest battles. Begun in Europe in 1939 in response to Hitler's invasion of Poland, the war soon escalated into a truly global conflict. How did the Allies win early military victories in the Mediterranean and Pacific? What was the nature of the fighting in Eastern Europe? What was the impact of the U.S. and Japan entering the war? How did the Allies win back Nazi-occupied territories? Answers to these questions are provided along with analyses of the most important battles of World War II-- in North Africa, in the Pacific, on the Eastern front, in the Atlantic, and at Normandy. Learn about the military maneuvers and tactics that determined the outcome of World War II.
