Overview
-

• Multi-author volume bringing together contributors from around the world to offer their perspectives on the global legacies of World War II
• Published in association with the Centre for Historical Analysis and Conflict Research

2020 marks 75 years since the end of World War II, yet even as the war slips from living memory, its legacies continue to influence current political and military thinking.

This anthology will analyse these legacies for a number of countries and regions including China, Russia, the United States, the Near East, and Germany illustrating in detail how World War II is not merely a historical event, but a defining moment for current military and political thinking around the globe. This book will therefore be of interest for those interested in history, but also political and military decision makers, and followers of current political and military affairs.
