'How this mobilization [of economic resources] was carried out, and with what consequences, is the subject of this magnificent collection of essays... [it is] the best analysis yet available of the war economies of the major Allied and Axis powers. The book is filled with original statistical material. Each contributor, even for economies where much is already known - Britain, the United States and Germany - has supplied a lively text, peppered with fresh insights and new perspectives. For countries where the basic wartime economic narrative is not yet available to English-speakers - Japan, Italy, the Soviet Union - the contributors have done a remarkable job in providing the quantitative framework without which no comparison can effectively be drawn between the economic war efforts of the six.' Richard Overy, The Times Literary Supplement
'Here is no commonplace collective volume, but a splendidly organised compendium of reference and interpretation for all readers interested in the war and an indispensable base for all further enquiry into it.' Alan Milward, The Times Higher Education Supplement
