Product Description Presenting the results of a fifth, and final, conference on the history of total war, this volume is devoted to the Second World War, which many scholars regard as the paradigmatic instance of total war. In considering the validity of this proposition, the contributors address a broad range of analytical problems that this vast conflict posed in its European and Asian theaters. They analyze modes of combat, mobilization of economies and societies, occupation regimes, noncombatant vulnerability, and the legal and moral issues raised by mid-twentieth century industrialized warfare. Review "...an impressive contribution...." - H-German, Jost Dülffer, BMW Center for German and European Studies, Georgetown University Book Description This volume presents the results of a conference on the history of total war.
