The Shock of War: The Civilian Experience, 1937-1945
In The Shock of War: Civilian Experiences, 1937-1945, Sean Kennedy shifts the reader's focus from the battlefields of World War II to the civilian experience. This short yet comprehensive text complements existing studies of World War II that document diplomatic and military operations. While many of these studies acknowledge the significance of the conflict for civilians, The Shock of War places civilians at the centre of events, drawing attention to the many different regions of the world affected by the conflict, and comparing various facets of the civilian experience. Kennedy's refreshing approach emphasizes the diverse and complex impact of the war which in some instances brought people together and which in others was profoundly destructive.
