Description

Winner of the Pritzker Prize for Military History
A "New York Times" Notable Book
From one of our finest military historians, a monumental work that shows us at once the truly global reach of World War II and its deeply personal consequences.
For thirty-five years, Max Hastings has researched and written about different aspects of the war. Now, for the first time, he gives us a magnificent, single-volume history of the entire conflict. Through his strikingly detailed stories of everyday people of soldiers, sailors and airmen; British housewives and Indian peasants; SS killers and the citizens of Leningrad Hastings provides a singularly intimate portrait of the world at war. Remarkably informed and wide-ranging, "Inferno" is both elegantly written and cogently argued. Above all, it is a new and essential understanding of one of the greatest and bloodiest events of the twentieth century.
