The History Journals
Do you want to learn more about World War II, but don't have time to read huge, long books? Then let The History Journals take you on an hourly history tour of each year of the war with The World War II History Journals series which includes one book per year from 1939 to 1945. Throughout this series of journals released to acknowledge 80 years since the beginning of WW2, we will be looking at the seven years of that conflict on an annual basis. The conflict, the buildup to war, the major battles, the strategies and technological developments, the effect on civilians, and most importantly of all we'll consider the role of the soldiers, sailors, and airmen who gave their lives fighting for the freedom of others. As the clock struck midnight on December the 31st 1939, and the world welcomed in the New Year of 1940, people everywhere awaited the outcome of this second global conflict of the 20th Century, with bated breath. 1939 had been a turbulent year, and since war had been declared on Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany on September the 3rd, nobody could predict what the future might hold. Great Britain, under the leadership of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain had worked tirelessly to appease Hitler and come to a peaceful compromise over his rebuilding of the German Empire, despite the fact that he was violating all the restraints of the Treaty of Versailles, placed on Germany after the First World War. Follow us onward into the history of WW2 in 1940. You will learn about: Dominance of German U-boats, invasion of Scandinavia and the British evacuees Election of Winston Churchill to war time prime minister The extraordinary miracle of the Dunkirk evacuation Battle of Britain, radar, Japan's first conflicts in the Far East, Italy and Mussolini Be sure to read/listen to all the books in the series - one for each year through the end of the war in 1945!
