AN ATLAS HISTORY OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR

Horrabin has a genius for crystallizing facts, and presenting them in map form so that the salient elements emerge. His Atlas Of Current Affairs is a miracle of brevity. And his new volume, similar in style and format, should be an important tool for everyone concerned in the new world pattern. He covers, through maps, diagrams, charts and brief text a wide range of subjects, dealing, for example, with Germany's problems of encirclement, of minorities, with Poland's reconstruction after the World War, the racial complexities, and the recent partition; with the new states, with the Baltic, the Balkans, Turkey, India, South Africa; with operations on the western front, the blockade of Germany, the new German boundaries, and Russia's march to the Baltic. Finally the problems of imports, exports and world trade and of shipping are succintly presented.
