"The World at War" (1920—1945) covers the period from the signing of the Versailles Treaty, which signaled the end of World War I, through World War II and the defeat of Japan. Special emphasis is given to the stressed postwar economies of Europe following the Great War, which set the stage for further international conflict. The Roaring Twenties, the stock market crash of 1929, The Great Depression, Roosevelt's New Deal, the rise of fascism, and the grim legacies of the Holocaust figure prominently in this volume. Also discussed is the influence of historic personalities such as Hitler, Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt, and Mussolini. Challenging map exercises and provocative review questions encourage meaningful reflection and historical analysis.
