Summary "World War II was the greatest single catastrophe humankind has inflicted upon itself. Few people alive at the time escaped its impact, and its consequences will continue to shape our future. This readable analysis and ready-reference guide is designed to help students and general readers to understand the causes, interrelated events, and implications of the war, and to provide a wealth of material for research. The text of 17 primary documents, lengthy biographical sketches of important figures in the war, a glossary, and an annotated bibliography provide ready-reference value. A detailed timeline of events traces the history of the war, while an introductory overview essay puts it in its historical, political, and social context." "Based on the most recent scholarship and complemented by a photo essay, this easy-to-use reference is the ideal student companion to a study of World War II."--BOOK JACKET
