Though this student looked in Whos Who and Contemporary Authors no information on Chester Wilmot could be found One considered searching the Directory of American Scholars but that would not be helpful since he is from AustraliaIn The Struggle for Europe Wilmot seeks to explain several points First he explores and explains how the western allies succeeded militarily but failed politically during World War II He then elaborates on how and why the western allies crushed the Nazi regime yet they allowed the Soviet Union to overtake Eastern Europe and block the Atlantic Charter from taking effect in those nations Third the author discusses Hitlers defeat and Stalins victory Fourthly he endeavors on a mission to explain how the Soviet Union replaced Germany as the dominant European powerBeginning with the Battle of Britain the book takes the reader through the war up to the surrender of Germany In this process Wilmot touches on Hitlers alliance with Mussolini Hitlers conquest of France the Lowlands and the Balkans and the Nazi dictators collapse in the expansion of the Soviet Union The author strategically builds the Allied alliance through the books course and he uses the Normandy invasion to illustrate its full effectiveness Also included are discussions on the concessions granted to Stalin by the Allies in general and Franklin D Roosevelt in particular President Roosevelt believed that Stalin wanted security for his country with no territorial acquisitions in mind In order to give the Soviet leader his second front in Europe FDR also put the Japanese problem in the Pacific asideBy providing the reader with first-hand quotes and writings from the Nazi war machines hierarchy Wilmot looks at the external and internal workings of the German Wehrmacht in meticulous detail The U-boat campaign the inadequacies of the Luftwaffe and the shortcomings of the Panzer divisions are discussed The war from April 1940 to May 1945 is expertly covered He details various meetings of Allied and Axis partners
