Product Description
<p><b>Winner of the Pritzker Prize for Military History<br>A <i>New York Times</i> Notable Book<br></b><br>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. <br> <br>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, <i>Inferno</i> 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.</p>
