Inhaltsangabe: The first book in the acclaimed Pride & Fall sequence on British power in the 20th century This book explains the decay of British power bewtween 1918 and 1940 and its final collapse between 1940 and 1945. Some have sought to expalin this ineptitude, particularly between the two world wars, by citing the tremendous costs of the First World War in both treasure and manpower. Not so, says Corelli Barnett, who ruthlessly identifies the root causes which reduced Britain eventually to a satellite of the USA. Ranging over 100 years, drawing together arguments from many spheres - education and industry, diplomatic and imperial history, Cabinet papers and the Press - it is as fascinating to read as it is significant.
Über den Autor: Corelli Barnett is a distinguished author and historian, having written three acclaimed works of military history before the immense and highly praised earlier books in the Pride and Fall sequence. From 1977 to 1995 he was keeper of the Churchill Archives Centre, Cambridge and remains a fellow of Churchill College. The recipient of numerous awards, he has been awarded the Royal United Services Institute for Defence Studies Chesney Gold Medal for services to military history; the degree of Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa) from Cranfield University and most recently the C.B.E.
