An edited volume of primary sources from the Second World War, The World in Flames: A World War II Sourcebook is the first of its kind to provide an ambitious and wide-ranging survey of the war in a convenient and comprehensive package. Conveying the sheer scale and reach of the conflict, the book's twelve chapters include sufficient narrative and analysis to enable students to grasp both the war's broad outlines and the context and significance of each particular source. Beginning with the growing disenchantment over the World War I peace settlements and the determination of German, Italian, and Japanese leaders to revise the situation, the book traces the descent into open, armed conflict. It covers the spectacular early successes of the Germans and Japanese, the pivotal campaigns of 1942, and the Allied effort during the remaining three years to destroy the Axis' capacity to wage war. Drawing examples from a wide range of documents, the text also includes visual sources: propaganda posters, photos, and cartoons. Features DT Global coverage: Discusses the European and Pacific theatres along with developments in North Africa, the Middle East, India, and the American home front DT Thematic breadth: Encompasses the war's social, cultural, and economic dimensions-alongside the more familiar military and diplomatic coverage-from the perspective of not only statesmen and commanders, but also of ordinary soldiers and civilians DT Chronological range: Offers coverage beyond the common dates of 1939-1945 by devoting attention to developments in the 1930s and by tracing the repercussions of the war through the controversies over Bitburg and the Enola Gay in the 1980s and 1990s DT Manageable length: Presents selections that are long enough to give students a clear sense of a particular document, but not so extensive as to be overwhelming
