    In the years between the two great wars, the nations of the world, ravaged by war and depression, struggled to maintain a delicate peace.Torn between pressing social needs- record-setting unemployment and the threat of revolutions, Western Europe played for time in which to repair its economies and to strengthen its governments.No one wanted war: Britain was still healing the wounds of World War I; the Americans had retreated into isolation; the French were divided politically and the Soviet Union, an international outcast, was facing its own enormous problems.Yet, determined to win the ‘living space’ he was convinced Germany needed, Adolf Hitler made war unavoidable, despite the pronounced reluctance of the rest of the world. Almost seventy years after the start of World War II, historians Richard Overy and Andrew Wheatcroft return to the question of why the nations of the world found themselves embroiled in conflict once more.Step by step, Overy and Wheatcroft reconstruct the perspective of each country as it marched down the road to war: Germany, Great Britain, France, Italy, the Society Union, Japan, and the United States, each with its own domestic problems and international ambitions. Hailed in England for its accessibility as well its scholarship, The Road to War is a handbook for anyone interested in how war came.

    O avtorju

    -Richard James Overy-

    Richard James Overy, član Britanske akademije in Kraljeve zgodovinske družbe ter eden vodilnih britanskih zgodovinarjev, ki raziskujejo drugo svetovno vojno in tretji rajh, je avtor več kot dvajsetih knjig o drugi svetovni vojni in diktatorjih 20. stoletja. Poleg Tretjega rajha so njegove naj odmevnejše knjige The Air War 1939–1945, Why the Allies Won, Russia’s War: Blood upon the Snow, The Dictators: Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Russia, ki je leta 2004 prejela Wolfsonovo nagrado za zgodovino in leta 2005 nagrado M. Hessell-Tiltman, 1939: Countdown to War in The Bombing War: Europe 1939–1945. Njegove analize druge svetovne vojne strokovna kritika označuje kot »izjemno pomembno, izvirno, učinkovito in neusmiljeno razgaljanje mitov, s katerim nam izostri sliko dogodkov v 20. stoletju«.
