A broadly interdisciplinary work, this handbook discusses the best and most enduring literature related to the major topics and themes of World War II. Military historiography is treated in essays on the major theaters of military operations and the related themes of logistics and intelligence, while political and diplomatic history is covered in chapters on international relations, resistance movements, and collaboration. The volume analyzes themes of domestic history in essays on economic mobilization, the home fronts, and women in the military and civilian life. The book also covers the Holocaust. This handbook approaches each topic from a global viewpoint rather than focusing on individual national communities. Except for nonprint material, the literature, research, and sources surveyed are primarily those available in English. The volume is aimed at both experts on the war and the general academic community and will also be useful to students and serious laymen interested in the war.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The work is divided into six sections, beginning with two for general histories and research aids, then turning to strategy, events, or other action accounts. Among the topics chosen for inclusion in the European theater are the operational standbys--the contest for North Africa, the campaign in Northwest Europe, the battle of the Atlantic, and even the Russian campaign. New and exciting in this work is its almost equal attention in the three remaining sections to resistance, POWs, spies, and wars behind the lines (which includes a brief look at the Holocaust); a look at war and society, which is devoted to economic mobilization, social change, women, refugees, and associated issues; and a review of the colonial heritage, which relates to the war in South America, the Mideast, the British Commonwealth, and sub-Saharan Africa.... The essays are well-written, the bibliographies full, and the approach comprehensive. Recommended for all academic reference collections."-Choice
