$5.99

More people died during World War II than during any conflict in history, and the war left the world in ruins. So who were the winners and losers? The Axis nations lost in the big-picture sense. But Germany quickly became relevant again in a decades-long ideological Cold War. Great Britain, meanwhile, was on the winning side but lost its empire and global clout.

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.
