James Holland: The War in The West – The Allies Fight Back, 1941-1943

Published: August 14, 2019 by source

In the latest volume of his ground-breaking World War 2 trilogy, James Holland describes how the tide of war began to turn against the Axis. Looking at the war from the battle front to the factories and shipyards, he tells the story of how, in the Battle of the Atlantic, in the Mediterranean, and in the escalating bombing campaign of Nazi Germany, the Allies finally gained the upper hand. Here is an epic account of one of the most dramatic periods in history.

James Holland is a historian, writer, and broadcaster. He is also co-founder and Programme Director of the hugely successful Chalke Valley History Festival.
