- A New History: The Allies Fight Back 1941-43
- By: James Holland
- Narrated by: Leighton Pugh
- Length: 24 hrs and 54 mins
In the second volume of his acclaimed new history of the Second World War, James Holland examines the momentous turning points of 1941-1943: Hitler's invasion of Russia, America's entry into the conflict, the devastating Thousand Bomber Raids over Germany, the long struggle in the deserts of North Africa and the defeat of the U-boats in the crucial Battle of the Atlantic. As in his first volume, Germany Ascendant, he interweaves his account of the well-known events of the period with the personal stories of individuals caught up in them - on all sides.

Can’t wait for Book 3.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it makes me realise that I know nothing about what happened during these two years of the war. James Holland certainly has the knack of making you want to learn more about World War 2. Role on the final instalment of this great trilogy.
