'Chester Wilmot's The Struggle for Europe is the most highly regarded single-volume history of the Second World War in Europe. The pattern of post-war Europe, he maintains, was determined during the fighting; he sees the shaping of events through a study of wartime diplomacy and strategy and the impact on wartime policies of the personalities of the statesmen and generals with whom the decisions lay.'
