The fourth volume of WSC's history of the Second World War, The Hinge of Fate describes how the tide of the war gradually turned for Britain and its allies from constant defeat to almost unbroken successes—Japan's successful assault on the Pacific, Britain's attempts to aid a beleaguered Russia and the defeat of Rommel at the Battle of Alamein. Illustrated with maps.
Very good condition. There is some very light bumping to the boards edges and at the head of the spine, and a few spots of foxing to the page edges which appear under the gilt. The pages are clean, the binding secure and the book free from inscription.
