No End Save Victory - Perspectives on World War II
No End Save Victory is a collection of brilliant essays about World War II by some of the most renowned historians in their field. Essays include: Caleb Carr on Poland in 1939—the only war Hitler actually won; Stephen E. Ambrose on a pivotal battle to take the Rhine; John Keegan on the siege of Berlin; Thaddeus Hold on the King of Bataan; Kanji Suzuki on A Kamikaze's Story; Thomas B. Allen and Norman Polmar on the Voice of the Crane. Each of these fascinating pieces has appeared in print only once before: in the pages of the award-winning, authoritative MHQ: The Quarterly Journal of Military History. In each issue, MHQ brings the history of warfare and of society to life through vivid narrative accounts of the key events—some well known, some seemingly obscure—that have shaped the world we live in today. Recent hit movies including Saving Private Ryan and U-571 [as well as best-selling books such as D-Day June 6, 1944 and Blind Man's Bluff,] sparked a revival of interest in World War II history among all ages. No End Save Victory will find a large and appreciative audience eager to hear what our era's most distinguished historical thinkers and writers have to say about this most crucial of 20th-century conflicts.
