Inferno: The World at War, 1939-1945 by Max Hastings
Inferno: The World at War, 1939-1945

Mark Nora, January 19, 2012

He artfully explores the impact of the war on civilian populations, as well as the combat soldiers, sailors and airmen, and the governing elites. He also places the war in its historical context of the end of colonial empires. If there is a shortcoming, it relates to the war in the Pacific.
