Praise

“Overy is one of the great historians of the second world war.”– Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times (London)

“This country’s most distinguished historian of the Second World War … Overy’s book is easily the best account of Europe’s descent into the death and destruction that were Hitler’s element” –– Michael Burleigh, Evening Standard (London)

“Nail-biting … with rare narrative verve, he documents the ultimatums, emissaries, letters and increasingly desperate proposals that shuttled across Europe in the countdown to war.””-– Ian Thomson Independent (London)

“Even those who think they know it all about how war broke out will learn something from Richard Overy’s book”-– Simon Heffer, Literary Review (London)

“One of the great historians of this conflict” — Simon Garfield, Observer (London)
