Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book sheds new light on the Asian factor in the making of World War II in Europe. Margaret Lamb and Nicholas Tarling examine how the threat that Japan presented to the status quo in East Asia made it difficult for Britain to face Hitler's Germany and Mussolini's Italy.

Book News Annotation:

Specialists in the history of WWII will be interested in this new study. Lamb (formerly history, U. of Aukland) and Tarling (history, U. of Hull) describe the events of WWI, the peace treaties that followed it, and the events leading up to WWII, then proceed through the Second World War year by year. Throughout their chronology they describe the political events and personalities of Europe with a focus on their awareness of China and Japan and the role this Asian factor played in the decisions, events, and alliances of the war.
