In 1942, Germany controlled almost the entire resources of continental Europe and was poised to move into the Middle East. Japan had wiped out the Western colonial presence in East Asia and was threatening northern India and Australia. The Allied victory in 1945 has since come to seem inevitable.

Publishers Weekly, 1997-04-14 The author explores the moral component of the Allies' efforts in World War II. (May)
Publishers Weekly, 1996-02-26 In The Road to War (1990), Overy plumbed the origins of WWII. Here, he examines the reasons for the war's outcome, challenging two pieces of conventional wisdom: that the Axis overextended itself by taking on the U.S., Britain and the Soviet Union, and that the Allied victory was due to material strength only. Instead, Overy contends that the Allies' triumph depended on the exponential improvement of an initially inferior military capacity, as well as on moral fiber. The Allies, he argues convincingly, turned economic potential into fighting power, exploiting modernity by integrating technology and logistics into a comprehensive war effort that was sustained by moral force. Combining telling detail and wide scope, the author shows that, ultimately, the governments and peoples of the Allied Grand Coalition triumphed because they acted on the understanding that WWII was a life-and-death struggle for fundamental values.
