The Storm of War Summary


The Storm of War: A New History of the Second World War by Andrew Roberts

From the author of Masters and Commanders, Andrew Roberts' The Storm of War: A New History of the Second World War has been hailed as the finest single-volume account of this epic conflict.

The Second World War lasted for 2,174 days and claimed the lives of over 50 million people. Why did it take the course that it did? Why did the Axis lose? And could they, with a different strategy, have won?

Ranging from the Western front to North Africa, from the Baltic to the Far East, he brings the story of the war - and those who fought it - into focus as never before.

'One of the greatest historians of our time ... His masterpiece'
Oliver Marre, Observer

'An undoubted triumph. This, simply, is the best one-volume history of the Second World War currently available'
Laurence Rees

'Magnificent ... Stylish penmanship, gritty research and lucid reasoning, coupled with poignant and haunting detours into private lives ruined and shortened'
Economist

'Moving, thought-provoking, enlightening'
Roger Moorhouse, Independent

'An exceptional accomplishment ... the definitive single-volume history of the war ... Essential'
Peter Watts, Time Out

'In what might be his best book yet, Roberts gives us the war as seen from the other side of the hill - the German Reich'
Nigel Jones, Sunday Telegraph

The Storm of War Reviews


Roberts's populist approach makes for a rollicking good read and never comes at the expense of accuracy. 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 *
