This is the most compelling work of military geography I’ve ever seen. It’s a testament to the titanic scale of the conflict of 1939-1945, which dwarfs all others in world history. The ferocity of World War II- the level of its violence and the cost in human life—almost defies description: up to 80 million deaths; some 20 million on the battlefield; and around three times more than that among civilians caught up in the firestorm of bombing and all-embracing warfare on land, sea, and air. What these maps explain in intricate detail is the mobility and speed with which mechanized armies could sweep across vast areas, and with which warships and aircraft could inflict destruction at ranges never before dreamed of.
