Britains War Machine

Britains War Machine Read ☆ 106 Le others paid a great price Britain's War Machine by putting resources machines and experts at the heart of a global rather than merely imperial story demolishes some of the most cherished myths about wartime Britain and gives us a very different and often unsettling picture of a great power in action On the way back from a trip to the UK I dipped into the bookstore at the airport and couldn t resist a 3 for 2 Sonderangebot The main inspiration was David Edgerton s book on the mobilisation of the Empire in Britain s War Machine I got excited by the tables of British and overseas production as well as the maps of oil pipelines and major centres of war production Topping that is the list of highest awards from the Royal Commission of Awards for Inventions Edgerton weaves contemporary and newly made graphics very well and I look forward to reading it some day

Britains War Machine Read ☆ 106 GUARDIAN BOOKS OF THE YEARThe familiar image of the British in the Second World War is that of the plucky underdog taking on German might David Edgerton's bold compelling new history shows the conflict in a new light with Britain as a very wealthy country formidable in arms ruthless in pursuit of its i A good companion to works such as Tooze s Wages of Destruction and Collingham s The Taste of War this work investigates British attitudes towards a war that was thought to be determined by modern technology The British Empire was notable for its reliance on its powerful industrial basis Perhaps Edgerton s book is not as thorough as the two studies mentioned above The book has a stronger political slant as Edgerton argues that later historical interpretation of the war was strongly colored by the rise of British nationalism and post war political thinking which displaced the strongly internationalist outlook of the war years This gave rise to the myth of Britain standing alone against the might of Nazi occupied Europe which in turn fed many small myths This work makes a strong effort to replace myth with facts and figures and describe the reality of the war years The result is laden with information both on industry and on the important personalities of the period At times one does get the feeling that the author is overreaching a bit But this is a very interesting work which may change one s perspective on a period about which all already appeared to be known

Britains War Machine Read ☆ 106 Nterests and sitting at the heart of a global production systemThe British indeed Churchillian vision of war and modernity was challenged by repeated defeat by less well euipped enemies Yet the end result was a vindication of this vision Like the United States a powerful Britain won a cheap victory whi More often or not I come across a work of history and think this is a good book Very rarely do I come across a book that changes my entire perception of an historical event This book is one of them Students of WW2 history are familiar with the image of plucky Britain standing up to the Nazi juggernaut Edgerton takes a mills bomb to this idea and blows it out of the water Using a barrage no pun intended of stats tables and pages of brilliantly researched data Edgerton turns one of the enduring myths of WW2 on its head If anything it was Germany that was the underdog The sheer scale of Britain s empire the resources at its disposal and its ability to fight and dictate war on its terms made victory inevitable Edgerton rightly points to the horrendous attrition on the Eastern Front and compares it with Britain s losses we got off lightly part of that was Britain s goal to fight a modern war In contrast the low mechanization of the Wehrmacht and the Red Army was a reminder of the slaughter of the Great War Edgerton demolishes myths about Britain s food supply only the Americans were better feed manpower how can a country with a global empire of 500 million suffer a manpower shortage and tank productionNow tank production is a double edged sword and one of the very few bones of contention I have with this book Yes Britain produced tanks but it was the uality and the training that made the difference in match ups against the Germans Edgerton highlights the General Grant as an example of a British tank with a better main gun than its German counterpart Panzer Mark IV Yes the Grant s 75mm was better than the mark IV s short barrelled euivalent but the panzer s armament was turret mounted whilst the Grant had its 75mm fixed in the hull reducing its arc of fire A moot point but crucial in tank Vs tank combat If the author had spent less time buried in stats and playing miniature wargames he d know this Jokes aside Britain s war machine is an insightful and at times brilliant read
