Synopsis

Why Did World War II Happen? by Cath Senker, R. G. Grant

A mere two decades after the conclusion of World War I, another large-scale military conflict entrenched most of Europe and many other countries in warfare for a second time. Many of the causes of World War II can be found in the effects of World War I. This book examines some of those causes and effects, providing sidebars, timelines, and vivid photographs from the period.
