Example text

Were their choices wise and prudent, or reckless and self-destructive, or inescapable, given contemporary knowledge and options as well as known outcomes? What effects did the war have on minor participants, neutral states, and ordinary people whose lives it pounded and uprooted or utterly destroyed? To the degree possible in a general work such as this, I tried to weave in a sense of the extreme clash of will and force that characterizes all war, of the blood and smashed bone and suffering that always attends real war as waged by real people.

At the same time, old ideas about sea power and armies on the move had to be adjusted to incorporate new ideas and realities of air power. Everywhere, there was newfound devotion of government and science to weapons development. That process meant the means of destruction available were vastly greater by 1945 than when the war began, more than a single technological generation ahead of what planners anticipated just a few years before it started. ” Everyone learned better utilization of combined arms and radio-linked command and control systems so that more powerful killing machines became more efficient as well as more numerous in late-war battles.

Lieutenant Colonel Erik Rundquist, a National Defense Fellow at Boston University in 2008–2009, was especially helpful concerning entries dealing with airborne warfare. I am grateful also to my friend and colleague William Keylor. As his students know, he is the deepest of all fonts of knowledge on the international history of the 20th century. Any mistakes that survived consultation of sources and colleagues to find their way into this very large text are mine alone. l AUTHOR’S NOTE I have taken care to make the Encyclopedia of World War II especially useful to readers by providing cross-references from multiple directions.
