Publisher's Summary

In this one-hour history book, discover why 1940 was such a crucial year as we uncover the main events of that year during World War II, the most lethal war of all times.

Probably no historical period has been discussed and dissected as much as World War II. Yet there is always something new to learn upon closer inspection. Events occurred at lightning speed during the war years, and you almost have to take things on a day-by-day basis to take them all in. That is why this book focuses solely on what transpired in 1940.

The year 1940 was one of the most pivotal years of World War II. It was the year that Britain and France began offensive operations against the Germans.

It was the year in which Scandinavia was besieged first by Soviets in Finland and then by the Nazis in Norway.

And, of course, it was the year that a blitzkrieg advance blew past the Maginot Line and resulted in the swift capitulation of France.

What occurred in 1940 will always occupy a prominent place in the annals of history. Much has been written about this year already, but this book probes the depths to provide a wealth of information and perspectives that you may not have heard before.

In this short one hour book, you will know everything you need to know about what happened in 1940 during World War II.
