The Second World Wars


Just before Thanksgiving I had the honor to talk with Victor Davis Hanson, a classicist and military historian whose work I've long admired, about his most recent book, The Second World Wars: How the First Global Conflict was Fought and Won. An analytical rather than chronological history, Dr. Hanson's book looks at World War II from multiple perspectives—like industry, leadership, infantry, armor, and naval power—to examine why the Allies won, the Axis lost, and why the war was the bloodiest in human history.
