War Aims in the Second World War: The War Aims of the Key Belligerents 1939-1945 (Societies at War) e-book
by Victor Rothwell
Published by: Edinburgh University Press. War aims bearing some resemblance to those that were to feature in the Second World War may be dated back to the sixteenth century when the notion of furthering the interests of the state as an impersonal entity gained in strength, coupled with a conviction that the interests of one’s own state were the only ones that needed to be taken into.

After the outbreak of the Second World War the public memory became more distant still from the experience of 1914-1918 . The British declaration of war on 3 September 1939 led to an immediate reorganisation of the government, with Chamberlain forming a small War Cabinet of nine men.
After the outbreak of the Second World War the public memory became more distant still from the experience of 1914-1918 although specific commemorations of the war remained most meaningful to those who had been directly affected. This was not the innovation that it seemed, for most, including especially Halifax at the Foreign Office, were holdovers from Chamberlain’s previous Cabinet, while arch-Appeasers like Simon (Chancellor of the Exchequer) and Hoare (Lord.

This is the first study of the aims that motivated the major powers -- the United States, the Soviet Union, Great Britain, Germany, and, Japan -- to fight in the Second World War. The book shows how some war aims were constants, unlikely to be abandoned except as a result of total defeat, while others arose as a result of the fortunes of war.

He shows that consistency of purpose is most evident in Great Britain, content with the international prewar status quo, and Nazi Germany, intent on replacing it with a new order in which all liberal and civilized values would be annihilated.
