Pressestimmen

'Martin Gilbert's The Routledge Atlas of the Second World War is a riveting collection of original and informative maps.' - The Observer 'This really is a brilliantly useful book ... All in all, this is an outstanding reference work that can also be enjoyed as an unusual graphic history of the Second World War and its many political, economic and military dimensions.' - Military Illustrated 'Gilbert's work is quite simply, a huge repository of information. It provides history teachers with the building blocks which enable them to use their skills of evaluation, prioritisation and contextualisation ... Here then is a gem of a book ... Unquestionably the Atlas of the Second World War will become indispensable.' - SATH History Teaching Review 'Historian Gilbert's latest atlas covers all aspects of WWII: military, air, and naval battles, compaigns, and raids; the sufferings of civilians, Holocaust victims, forced laborers, POWs, postwar expellees, and displaced persons; economic and social issues; and the aftermath, including locations of war cemeteries ... The Routledge atlas, while compact, contains 247 maps ... ' - CHOICE 'Like all Gilbert's atlases this is an authoritative, comprehensive and generally meticulously compiled and researched volume. Perhaps the most impressive feature is the breadth of the topics covered and the depth of information conveyed ... Indeed it is the non-military dimension of this war atlas that is probably the most distinctive feature.' - Reference Reviews

Kurzbeschreibung

In The Routledge Atlas of the Second World War, Martin Gilbert graphically charts the war’s political, military, economic and social history through 257 illuminating maps. The atlas covers all the major events from the German invasion of Poland in September 1939 to the defeat of Japan in August 1945.


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



This paperback edition includes several updates to existing maps, as well as ten new maps, specially drawn for this edition. The new maps include examinations of Japanese- American and African- American soldiers serving with the United States Army, British women special agents, Belgium at War, and the German occupation of the Channel Islands.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Informational Atlas 5. Januar 2009
Von Scott A. Dirocco - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
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 von 5 Sternen All the maps you wished were in the books 12. März 2014
Von Majted - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Should be in your WW 2 library 17. Dezember 2013
Von Daniel A Raven - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
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 von 5 Sternen An Outstanding Historical Atlas by the ""Dean" of Historical Atlases 2. April 2014
Von Sally T - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
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.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Kindle edition maps oriented wrong way 18. November 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am sure the print edition is a great book but on a Kindle the page rotation means that it is impossible to view a page in landscape using the landscape screen. This makes for a really poor reading experience.
