Routledge Studies in Second World War History


About the Series

The Second World War remains today the most seismic political event of the past hundred years, an unimaginable unpheaval that impacted upon every country on earth and is fully ingrained in the consciousness of the world's citizens. Traditional narratives of the conflict are entrenched to such a degree that new research takes on an ever important role in helping us make sense of World War II. Aiming to bring to light the results of new archival research and exploring notions of memory, propaganda, genocide, empire and culture, Routledge Studies in Second World War History sheds new light on the causes, events and legacy of global war.
