Annotation

From Axis Victories to the Turn of the Tide is a history of the critical campaigns of WorldWar II that highlights the “visible” turning point battles of the war in 1942 and 1943. By focusing not only on what happened but also on why, Alan Levine’s in-depth approach to the subject questions whether the Axis ever had any hope of winning the war.As the Nazis conquered Poland in their march toward domination, the war began its inevitable spread across the world. Levine looks at the war from a geographical perspective, examining critical events on both the eastern and western fronts—such as the battles of Britain, the Atlantic, Stalingrad, and Midway—to determine how operations in these areas affected its overall path. He also scrutinizes key developments that began to turn the war’s outcome in favor of the Allies. These decisive moments include the entry of the United States into the war and the defeat of the German thrust to the vital Soviet oilfields of the Caucasus.From Axis Victories to the Turn of the Tide encompasses several critical years of world history and offers a fresh perspective for both general readers and academics interested in crucial episodes of World War II. Levine’s analysis shows us how these seminal events shaped the world that we live in today.
