Publisher Description

A magisterial, single-volume history of the greatest conflict the world has ever known by our foremost military historian.

*****

The Second World War began in August 1939 on the edge of Manchuria and ended there exactly six years later with the Soviet invasion of northern China. The war in Europe appeared completely divorced from the war in the Pacific and China, and yet events on opposite sides of the world had profound effects. Using the most up-to-date scholarship and research, Beevor assembles the whole picture in a gripping narrative that extends from the North Atlantic to the South Pacific and from the snowbound steppe to the North African Desert.
Although filling the broadest canvas on a heroic scale, Beevor's The Second World War never loses sight of the fate of the ordinary soldiers and civilians whose lives were crushed by the titanic forces unleashed in the most terrible war in history.

Force Justify

My title is nothing to do with war, but the paragraph alignment. It's set to force justify, whereas I prefer left aligned and can't override it. Please issue an update.
I'm only in the third chapter but the book is good.
