416 Pages of Excuses

I came across a book while surfing through the upcoming titles for the following months...

Why The Allies Won
ISBN: 1845950658
Author: Richard Overy

As Richard Overy makes clear, the Allied victory in 1945 - though comprehensive - was far from inevitable. By 1942, almost the entire resources of continental Europe were in German hands and Japan had wiped out the western colonial presence in Asia. Overy provides a re-interpretation of the war through an account of the decisive military campaigns that created the astonishing revival in Allied fortunes. Richard Overy casts a brilliant light on the most important turning-point of the modern age.

Well, I've got one word for Why The Allies Won...

Nuff' Said.
