We have been told that the Second World War was our greatest triumph-the moment when the of light (the Western democracies) prevailed over the forces of darkness (the Nazis, Fascists, and the other Axis powers).

But far from culminating in the triumph of the West, the Second World War was part of a titanic, 50-year struggle between rival empires, and ended in an inexorable shift in the global balance of power toward the East. The world of 1900 was in many ways as globalized as our own is today. Markets for goods, labor, and capital were integrated as never before. Men and women had never mingled so freely as they did in cities like London, Berlin, and Shanghai. And yet, it was precisely such cities that were devastated in a war waged against innocent civilians not by some ruthless alien invader–as H.G. Wells had imagined, but by their fellow human beings.

What had happened to cause this epic destruction? What made the 20th Century–an age of unprecedented material and scientific achievement–also the most violent in all of history?

Place the Second World War in the context of history and modern warfare, analyzing the various interpretations of this war.
