In this groundbreaking book, Norman Davies offers a clear-eyed reappraisal of World War II, untangling and setting right the disparate claims made by America, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union in order to get at the startling truth. No Simple Victory is an unparalleled work that will fascinate anyone who is interested in discovering the reality behind what Davies refers to as "the frozen perspective of the winners' history."
