        "Cry Havoc" by Joseph Maiolo is the story of how the decade-long arms race preceding WWII helped shape the opening and the scope of the war. For many readers, the s will get a polite chapter in any WWII history, explaining the forces leading up to the first shots. After that, your typical war history is battles, battles, and more battles/5. Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet.
