450 pp. Close to new, spine uncreased. Remainder slash mark on bottom edge. Text clean. Tight binding. Originally published as an "instant" history of the war right after its conclusion in 1945. Useful today as a chronology and as a benchmark of how the U.S. assessed the war in its immediate aftermath and perceived the significance of individual battles. Written in Commager's vivid, trenchant style that makes his scholarship accessible to a popular readership.
