Book Description

1 Feb 2001
Panoramic in scope, flawless in presentation, this book is a monument of international history. Having amassed all that is known of the kaleidoscopic blunders, deceptions and fateful games of secret intelligence, Donald Watt cogently explains how Europe's leaders were influenced and misled by Hitler's demonic drive for power. Here, fascinatingly arranged for the general reader, are the reasons for a multicausal war that reshaped the world.

1.0 out of 5 stars How War Came? 8 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A rambling look at events leading up to the Second World War. Like Bejamin Disraeli, the writer is inebriated with the exuberance of his own verbosity and you rapidly get lost in the thickets of his prose.
