Reviews

In this thoughtful analysis Rothwell provides a concise summary of the key belligerents' war aims, something that few other monographs have done ! War Aims is a well written work, based on extensive and thorough grounding in the profuse secondary literature, and is highly recommended. An excellent idea! I know of no single-volume study on the topic. -- Dr David Reynolds, Cambridge Carefully thought-out and well-constructed! I am familiar with Dr Rothwell's work, above all his book on war aims during the First World War, and it is this book that inspires confidence for a similar one on the Second World War. -- Professor Roger Louis, University of Texas War Aims id a well written work, based on extensive and thorough grounding in the profuse secondary literature, and is highly recommended. -- Russell A. Hart, Hawai'i Pacific University The Journal of Military History Both books can be read profitably by any and all students and scholars interested in the unfolding of the Second World War.
