Follow the spread of war throughout the world, and the technological developments and refinements of weaponry, as the Germans undertake the blitzkrieg of Eastern Europe from 1939 to 1941, enlist other discontented countries in their cause, and wage a bitter offensive against Russia. Also covered is the Anglo-American counteroffensive in Africa and the battles that raged in the Mediterranean and northwest Europe.
