Présentation de l'éditeur

In The Routledge Atlas of the Second World War, Martin Gilbert graphically charts the war’s political, military, economic and social history through 247 maps. Each map has been specially drawn for this atlas, many of them covering topics that have not previously been mapped. The atlas covers all the major events from the German invasion of Poland in September 1939 to the defeat of Japan in August 1945, including the Blitz, the Fall of France, Pearl Harbor, the naval Battles of the Atlantic, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific, Dieppe, Stalingrad, Midway, the Normandy Landings, the bombing of Warsaw, London, Coventry, Hamburg, Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Burma Railway, concentration camps and slave labour camps, and prisoner-of-war camps in Europe, the Americas and the Far East.


Focusing on the human - and inhuman - aspects of the war, The Routledge Atlas of the Second World War includes examination of:





    • Military, naval and air campaigns on all the war fronts



    • The war on land, at sea and in the air



    • The economic and social aspects of the war



    • The global nature of the war, in armed combat and in suffering



    • The impact of the war on civilians, both under occupation, and as deportees and refugees



    • The aftermath of the war: the post-war political and national boundaries; war graves, and the human cost of the war on every continent.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Informational Atlas 5 janvier 2009
Par Scott A. Dirocco - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Great informational atlas RE WWII. I pre-ordered this atlas on Gilbert's reputation alone and am completely satisifed AT THE PRICE (under $30 when I purchased it). Mr. Gilbert manages to give us a quality atlas at an affordable price. I recommend it wholeheartedly. If I was rating it against the perfect atlas, cost not a factor, I'd give it a 3.5--4 out of 5.

What this atlas is not: an oversized volume with detailed color maps showing troop nomenclature, movements, and leaders. For this type of atlas, I recommend trying to get your hands on the out-of-print "The Times Atlas of the Second World War" by John Keegan (1995 printing preferrable to the 1989).

What this atlas is: Roughly 250 maps. Each page is filled with a separate map covering some WWII relevant occurence. At first glance, the book doesn't have the flash of other atlases; The maps are black and white and you don't get detailed information RE battles (i.e. troop and leader identification for each battle, movements marked down to the hour, etc...).

After digging into it, however, you get the full benefit of the atlas. Gilbert tells the story of WWII using individual maps. The maps don't just cover the obligatory battles that everyone remembers and studies. He goes much further. For instance, detailed maps on such topics as "German factories using foreign forced labour, 1941-1945" and "Civilian Victims of the German Repession: The Bialystok Region of Poland, 1941-1944" give you a glimpse of how Mr. Gilbert succeeds at covering more than just the battles of WWII. He covers economic, social, and political factors and does a good job of showing how the war affected those involved, both civilian and military. He is particularly effective at showing how Poland as a nation was affected.

The book is slightly smaller than a standard 8.5" x 11" sheet of typing paper. This would normally bother me with an atlas but Gilbert's maps lend themselves to this format. It would have been nice to have some of the detailed maps in addition to the ones included but this would have assuredly raised the price and I don't believe that's what Gilbert was shooting for.

All in all, this atlas is a must for the price. In combination with Keegan's atlas mentioned above, you get you everything you need from from the perfect WWII atlas.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 All the maps you wished were in the books 12 mars 2014
Par Majted - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Here are 257 well researched maps you wished were in the books you've read on the Second World War. That, to me, is a serious shortcoming of most of the books. Many have loads of pictures, but few maps with which to orient yourself to events or gain an appreciation of the magnitude of them.
The book divides the maps into twelve sections:
1. From the German invasion of Poland to the fall of France (e.g. Soviet massacres of Polish prisoners - 1940)
2. Britain alone, and its Allies (e.g. German plan for the invasion of Britain)
3. The Soviet Union becomes an Allied Power (e.g. Soviet factories dismantled and sent Eastward for safety)
4. Japan and the United States enter the war (e.g Pacific Naval battles, May 1942 - July, 1945)
5. The unrelenting struggle, 1942 and beyond (e.g U-Boat sinkings in the Atlantic and Caribbean, January-May, 1942)
6. The unarmed and the civilians (e.g. The German concentration camp system)
7. Total War (e.g. The Anglo-American bombing of Germany, 1943-1945)
8. Year of decision, 1944 (e.g. Deceiving the Germans: The bogus Allied Army in Scotland, May, 1944)
9. The defeat of Germany (e.g Liberating the concentration camps, 4 April - 7 May, 1945)
10. The defeat of Japan (e.g. United States plans for the invasion of Japan, November 1945 - March, 1946)
11. Global War (e.g. Signals Intelligence: Enigma-Ultra-Purple at war, 1939-1945)
12. Aftermath (e.g. War crimes trials, 1945-1987)
The book is rather expensive, but I find it very worthwhile.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Marginally useful on Kindle 25 juillet 2014
Par Millard Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The maps in this atlas can be rotated and viewed in landscape mode when zoomed in on a Kindle. The selection and information is decent but there is an issue with clarity of text in the maps themselves. As usual with Gilbert's work, a great deal of the value in his atlases is found in the boxes of text and labels within the maps themselves and in this version they are quite blurry even when zoomed in. In most cases, but not all, it is still legible making reading a chore even with good eyesight. A further caveat is that the work itself is covered in only 33% of the book the remainder being bibliography and index. With all of the above in mind it will be up to the individual to decide whether or not the rather stiff price is worth the money. Hopefully the publishers will issue an update to correct the legibility issue by using a tighter focus on the map scans.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Should be in your WW 2 library 17 décembre 2013
Par Daniel A Raven - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I by chance came upon this book in the public library. It took only a few minutes to determine that this book had to be in my own collection of WW 2 books. Got the book and glad that I have it. Good for cross reference with other WW 2 books.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Outstanding Historical Atlas by the ""Dean" of Historical Atlases 2 avril 2014
Par Sally T - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This is another superb historical atlas by Sir Martin Gilbert, the renowned British historian who is the official biographer of Churchill and whose more than 80 books include atlases of World War I, Jewish History and American History. The scope of the material covered in this atlas is vast. It includes graphic 'pictures" of the major events and battles of the war, of course; but also a wealth of detailed maps such as "Soviet Massacres of Polish Prisoners of War April-May 1940", "The Burma Railway June 1942-October 1943", "Death Marches of Jewish Slave Labourers Mid-1944-May 1945" and "Kamikaze Suicide Pilots September 1944-September 1945". Gilbert gives full credit to his cartographers, Tim Apsden, as well as cartographers MIke Shand and Neil Hanson who render Martin's astounding scholarship into 247 clear maps, each supported with excellent keys and relevant text in boxes. If you are a fan of historical atlases or or newcomer to the genre, this "Complete Visual History of the Second World War" will engage you.
