The Second World War : a short history by Robert Alexander Clarke Parker( Book )

"From the rise of the Nazi party, through the bombing of Pearl Harbor, to the ultimate defeat of the Axis nations and the first chills of the Cold War, The Second World War : A Short History offers a completely comprehensive overview of the Second World War in one readable, compact volume. Alastair Parker deftly explores the causes of the war and why it lasted so long, how it was won and lost, and its consequences for humanity. The author traces the key events in both the European and Far Eastern theaters, outlining the strategies of the participants and the strengths and weaknesses of their fighting forces. Parker conveys a vivid picture of the features that distinguished the Second World War from any war that preceded it, including mobile warfare, widespread forced migration, the Holocaust, and strategic and nuclear bombing. Unlike many other histories of the war, this short history places the British and European involvement squarely in an international perspective, never shying away from raising difficult and fundamental questions about this monumental conflict."--Publisher description

Winston Churchill : studies in statesmanship by Robert Alexander Clarke Parker( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Produced in association with Correlli Barnett and Churchill College, Cambridge this book provides a fresh view of Churchill's changing attitudes and policies towards the evolving challenges of the twentieth century. It aims neither to denigrate nor engage in uncritical adulation. Studies in Statesmanship contains a series of careful assessments of different facets of Churchill's career made by a group of impartial historians mainly drawn from outside Britain. It is framed by a personal memoir from Churchill's daughter, Lady Soames and a concluding essay by Martin Gilbert, Churchill's biographer. With authors from the USA, Italy, Canada, Denmark, Germany, France and Poland, Studies in Statesmanship deals with Churchill as an energetic statesman in the arena of international politics and his concern to keep Britain independent and influential. A wide range of his interests and concerns are also examined. This book confirms Churchill's assured position as one of the most interesting political figures of the twentieth century
