Rick Atkinson’s Liberation Trilogy, Winner of the Pulitzer Prize

“By the time Japan surrendered on September 2, 1945, the Second World War had lasted six years and one day, ensnaring almost sixty nations, plus sundry colonial and imperial territories. Sixty million had died in those six years, including nearly 10 million in Germany and Japan, and more than twice that number in the Soviet Union ─ roughly 26 million, one-third of them soldiers.” ─ The Guns at Last Light, The War in Western Europe, 1944-1945, Copyright © 2013 by Rick Atkinson, Page 631.
