Love history? Know your stuff with History in an Hour.
Lasting six years and a day, the Second World War saw the lives of millions - soldiers and civilians, young and old - changed forever. During the conflict, a thousand people died for each and every hour it lasted. With eighty-one of the world's nations involved and affected in some way, this was war on a truly global scale.
Offering a wide overview of the major figures, politics and action on all sides, World War Two: History in an Hour provides a concise picture of the world upturned. How the conflicts began, the violence involved and how they affected a century: this is the story of the events that ended over sixty million lives and challenged our understanding of humanity.
