One of the most popular and controversial historians of the twentieth century, who made his subject accessible to millions, A. J. P. Taylor caused a storm of outrage with this scandalous bestseller. Debunking what were accepted truths about the Second World War, he argued provocatively that Hitler did not set out to cause the war as part of an evil master plan, but blundered into it partly by accident, aided by the shortcomings of others. Fiercely attacked for vindicating Hitler, A. J. P. Taylor's stringent re-examination of the events preceding the Nazi invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939 opened up new debate, and is now recognised as a brilliant and classic piece of scholarly research.… (més)

I read this book while on a month vacation in Paris so it was very timely being on French soil during the reading. Taylor tries to separate Hitler the politician from Hitler the monster that killed 6 million people in the concentration camps Basically, the treaty of Versailles set off the events that led to World War II. Much of the book deals with the constant creation and uncreation of treaties and the ultimate goal of not repeating the carnage of World War I. The book leads us to believe that Hitler never really wanted to fight France and England and it all sort of just happened. Taylor's take has been disputed but I always find that history written 57 years ago fascinating. This book helps us understand the lessons of history. ( )

Taylor descrive, dal suo punto di vista, la natura della politica hitleriana e il contesto che la rese possibile, a cavallo fra la crisi del vecchio equilibrio europeo e la nascita dell'egemonia mondiale di Stati Uniti e Unione Sovietica. ( )

A true revisionist, I loved reading Taylor's masterpiece. Well written and very controversial A must have for any scholar interested in the topic of total war and social change. ( )

4143 The Origins of the Second World War, by A. J. P. Taylor (read 19 Mar 2006) Since I lived thru, with much awareness, the years 1938 and 1939 I have always figured I knew all about how the war came about. This book has been an astounding revelation. Told in clear and eminently readable prose, Taylor puts forth many remarkable opinions and makes the war not as something Hitler planned and wanted but as something he went into because England and France did not know how to avoid the war. It is not a pro-Hitler book, but it is a book which throws a scintillating light on the events from 1919 to 1939. Hitler was mainly trying to undo the Versailles treaty, and some of the English leaders (especially McDonald, Baldwin and Chamberlain) seemed to think such an object had something to be said for it! The book aroused a storm of controversy when it was published in 1961 It is a fascinating and well-written book, and I really would like to read a book showing that its conclusions are mistaken--if they are.

Foreward: Second Thoughts: I wrote this book in order to satisfy my historical curiosity; in the words of a more successful historian, 'to understand what happened, and why it happened.'
Chapter 1: More than twenty years have gone by since the second World war began, fifteen since it ended. Those who lived through it still feel it as part of their immediate experience. One day they suddenly realise that the second World war, like its predecessor, has passed into history. This moment comes for a university teacher when he has to remind himself that his students were not born when the war started and cannot remember even its end. The second World war is as remote to them as the Boer war was to him ...
