The purpose of Weinberg's text is to suggest a way in which the dramatic events of World War II may be seen. Weinberg argues that the war must be seen as a whole, and that the presentation of it in discrete segments covering the European and Pacific portions separately distorts reality and obscures important aspects of the war on both sides of the world. In addition, any understanding of the great struggle requires a mental self-liberation from the certain knowledge of its outcome. In desperate struggles millions fought and died, hopeful or fearful--or both--but without awareness of the end.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Essays representing the pinnacle of the historian's craft: a solid and sweeping survey."-- "German Studies Review"
"The dean of American historians specializing in the history of Nazi Germany has written a book that will benefit anyone interested in modern history. However, high school, college, and university students studying World War II for the first time and wanting the complexities of that conflict made more understandable will find it especially useful."-- "The History Teacher"
