Atlas of World War II


Hundreds of maps and photographs illustrate the major battles and campaigns of the Second World War
It has often been stated that World War II was part of a European Civil War that began in 1914 at the start of World War I. This is partly
true. In Europe, at least, the two world wars were the two hideous halves of the Anglo-German controversy that was at the heart of both conflicts. The question posed was: would Britain be able, or willing, to maintain her vast Empire in the face of German hegemony on the continent of Europe? ...

The answer to that question never came. Britain, in seeking to thwart German interests on the Continent, eventually lost her whole Empire in the attempt -an empire that between the wars encompassed a quarter of the earth's surface and an equal proportion of its population. Put into that context, both world wars were dangerous for Britain to fight, jeopardizing the very existence of the Empire and inevitably weakening the
mother country to the point that she could not maintain her world position at the end of the conflicts.
