The Great Courses No.810: World War II: A Military And Social History.
Fifty-five million people died in the Second World War, the greatest conflict in human history. Fifty years later, these lectures ask and answer important questions about this war:
- Might Hitler have been stopped sooner?
- Should Roosevelt have foreseen Pearl Harbor?
- Could more lives have been saved as the Holocaust became known?
- Did Truman have to use the atomic bomb at Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
- Did the Allies come closer to losing World War II than we would like to think?
