Lasting six years and a day, the Second World War saw the civilian, however young or elderly, in the frontline of war. Civilian deaths accounted for 5% of those killed during the First World War; during the Second, of the 50 million plus killed, it was over 66%. During the 2, 174 days of the conflict, a thousand people died for each and every hour it lasted.

With 81 of the world's nations involved, compared to 28 during the First World War, this war, unlike any other, was total war.

This, in an hour, is how it all happened.


*History In An Hour* is a series of e-books to help the reader learn the basic facts of a given subject area with as little effort as possible. During the Second World War, for example, exactly what was Dunkirk about, or the Normandy Landings? During the Cold War, what happened during the Cuban Missile Crisis, why was there a wall in Berlin?

It's all here in a straight narrative. No embedded links to divert your attention, nor a daunting book of 600 pages with a 35 page introduction. Just straight in, to the point, sixty minutes, done. Then, having absorbed the basics, you may feel inspired to explore further.

Quick, easy-to-read and engaging history... ebooks to read in an hour.

*World War II In An Hour* is the second title in the History In An Hour series to be turned into an iPhone app.

The first is:

*The Cold War In An Hour*

Other titles in the pipeline include:

*The World Cup In An Hour*

*Nazi Germany In An Hour*

*The American Civil War In An Hour*
