Description

Product Description

Unknown Conflicts of the Second World War: Forgotten Fronts is a collection of chapters dealing with various overlooked aspects of the Second World War. The aim is to give greater depth and context to the war by introducing new stories about regions of the world and elements of the war rarely considered.

These chapters represent new discussions on previously undeveloped narratives that help to expand our understanding of the interconnectedness of the war. It also provides an expanded view of the war as a mosaic of overlapping conflicts rather than a two-sided affair between massive alliance structures. The Second World War saw revolutions, civil wars, social upheaval, subversion, and major geopolitical policy shifts that do not fit neatly into the Allied vs. Axis 1939–1945 paradigm. This aim is to connect the unseen dots from around the globe that influenced the big turning points we think we know well but have really only a superficial understanding of and in so doing shed new light on the scope and influence of the war.

Review

"Former Canadian naval officer and associate editor of Defence Report London, Dr. Murray has collected a dozen essays by scholars from nearly as many countries, that look, for the most part, at rather neglected aspects of the Second World War[...] All of the essays throw new light on often neglected corners of the war, but several are particularly valuable, perhaps most notably those on the Indian Ocean, Red guerrillas in the Baltic, and the Italian civil war [...] this is a valuable read for anyone with an interest in the Second World War."

- The NYMAS Review
