Book Review - The British Empire and the Second World War

By: Ashley Jackson (580.01/35732)
Publisher: Hambledon Continuum ISBN: 978-1-85285-517-8

In 1939 Hitler went to war not just with Great Britain; he also went to war with the whole British Empire. All parts of the empire joined the struggle and were involved in it from the beginning, undergoing huge changes and sometimes suffering great losses as a result. The war in the desert, the defence of Malta and the Malayan campaign, and the contribution of the empire as a whole in terms of supplies, communications and troops, all reflect the strategic importance of Britainís imperial status. Men and women not only from Australia, New Zealand and India but from may parts of Africa and the Middle East all played their part. The British Empire and the Second World War emphasizes a central fact about the Second World War that is often forgotten.
