The Hinge of Fate: The Second World War

Winston Churchill

In his introduction, John Keegan discusses Churchill’s historical methods and the extraordinary achievement of The Second World War. This volume also includes appendices, an index, maps and diagrams. Winston Churchill’s six-volume history of the cataclysm that swept the world remains the definitive history of the Second World War. Lucid, dramatic, remarkable both for its breadth and sweep and for its sense of personal involvement, it is universally acknowledged as a magnificent reconstruction and is an enduring, compelling work that led to his being awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. The Hinge of Fate describes how the tide of the war gradually turned for Britain and its allies from constant defeat to almost unbroken successes - Japan’s successful assault on the Pacific, Britain’s attempts to aid a beleaguered Russia and the defeat of Rommel at the Battle of Alamein.
