$5.99

Germany’s invasion of Poland on Sept. 1, 1939 prompted France and Britain to declare war within 48 hours. The Nazis then conquered Norway, Denmark and France, and set its bombers’ sights on Britain. Victor Davis Hanson explores the blitzkrieg tactics that fueled Adolf Hitler’s success and the foolish appeasement philosophy that empowered Germany, Italy, Japan and, for a while, the Soviet Union.

The enormity of World War II in history is staggering. It encompassed 17 different wars, included conflict on every continent, and led to three great holocausts in Germany, China and Russia. Fifty million to 70 million people were killed, more than in any other war or any other event in European history since the Bubonic plague. “World War II permeates history in the 20th century, and it permeates the past, present and future of Western civilizations,” says Victor Davis Hanson. Explore the war through his insights in our six-part lecture series.
