Summary
By exploring the moral sentiment of entire societies and their leaders, and how this changed under the impact of total war, the author presents readers with an entirely fresh perspective of the Second World War. Opening with the 'predators' - Mussolini, Hitler, Prince Hirohito of Japan - and moving onto appeasement, the rape of Poland, Barbarossa, the role of Churchill, and the Holocaust, Burleigh analyses the moral dimension of WWII's most important moments. More than merely a history of 'great men', however, he also examines the moral reasoning of individuals who had to make choices under circumstances difficult to imagine
Summary
Examines the Second World War in terms of the moral and ethical decisions made by the leaders of both sides and their consequences, including the effects it had on the civilian populations in both theaters
