Product description

Review

'Andrew Roberts's latest offering is a sparkling addition to the groaning shelves. Roberts offers refreshing judgements' --Robert Service, Observer

'what might be his best book yet' --Nigel Jones, Sunday Telegraph

'His mastery of the huge variety of subjects is truly impressive and his ability to marshal these subjects into a single compelling narrative stunning' --Keith Lowe, Daily Telegraph

'he presents stylish penmanship, gritty research and lucid reasoning, coupled with poignant and haunting detours into private lives ruined and shortened' --The Economist

'tightly written, every page packed with terse comment, well-organised facts and, often, telling details. Engrossing to read'
--Paul Johnson, Spectator

From the Back Cover

Andrew Roberts's acclaimed new history has been hailed as the finest single-volume account of this epic conflict. From the western front to North Africa, from the Baltic to the Far East, he tells the story of the war--the grand strategy and the individual experience, the brutality and the heroism--as never before.

Meticulously researched and masterfully written, The Storm of War illuminates the war's principal actors, revealing how their decisions shaped the course of the conflict. Along the way, Roberts presents tales of the many lesser-known individuals whose experiences form a panoply of the courage and self-sacrifice, as well as the depravity and cruelty, of the Second World War.
