    Description
    How, when it came down to it, did the Allies win the Second World War? How did they win the Battle of the Atlantic, blunt the Nazi blitzkrieg, work out how to land successfully on an enemy-held shore on D-Day, and 'hop' across the islands of the Pacific to assault the Japanese mainland?

    In Engineers of Victory Paul Kennedy reveals the role of the problem-solvers and middle-men who made it happen - such as Major-General Perry Hobart, who invented the 'funny tanks' which flattened the D-Day beaches; or Captain 'Johnny' Walker, who worked out how to sink U-boats with a 'creeping barrage'. By brilliantly answering the 'how' question, he brings a fresh perspective to the greatest conflict in human history.
