Product description


"An extraordinary array of facts and statistics, [The Second World Wars] offers an account of the fatalism of war."--New Yorker

"The Second World Wars by Victor Davis Hanson is breathtakingly magisterial: How can Mr. Hanson make so much we thought we knew so fresh and original?"--Karl Rove, Wall Street Journal

"Lively and proactive, full of the kind of novel perceptions that can make a familiar subject interesting again."--New York Times Book Review

"Hopefully, [The Second World Wars] will become required reading for students at professional military schools as an introduction to war in the industrial age as well as to students studying how the 20th century shaped who we are today."--Washington Times

"In his latest work, noted military historian Victor Davis Hanson provides an utterly original account of what he terms the 'first true global conflict.'"--History Net

"Victor Davis Hanson's history is thematic. The war is dissected into its constituent parts, allowing the historian to examine at length aspects of the conflict that would be given short shrift in a narrative account. What is remarkable is that despite the absence of a traditional storyline the reader's attention never flags. Indeed, I have learned more in a few days with this dog-eared [book] than I have in a lifetime of interest in World War II."--Washington Free Beacon

"Perceptive and provocative."--American Greatness

"Let me simply say this: prepare yourself to be astonished. The more you know about WWII, the greater will be your astonishment. The Second World Wars demonstrates once again that VDH is a constantly renewing American national treasure who continues to go from strength to strength."--Claremont Review of Books

"[Hanson's] insights into the international reach of the conflict are very much worth reading, and in this book as in all his others, the reading momentum never flags."--Open Letters Monthly

"I loved this book. Strongly recommended."--Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution
