Written by one of the most renowned war historians, Inferno is a compilation, a single volume history of the WWII. The book consists of many personal stories of soldiers, their wives, suicide bombers, and many others who suffered from the war, and didn’t gain from the victories.

From Hitler’s army freezing in the Soviet Union and Stalin’s use of population to bring down Nazis, to Roosevelt’s nuclear bombs, Hastings puts it all on a timeline.

The book also unveils some of the darker, unglorified facts of the war; the famine of Bengal, Finland’s unfathomable resistance against the Red Army and other crucial and dark events. Inferno is a book about the history of one of the most macabre war.
