    • There is much to commend in A.J.P. Taylor’s provocative revisionist study of the origins of the Second World War. The book is rich in argument and strong in analysis, but above all the theme that stands out is Taylor’s portrayal of Hitler as an ordinary German who achieved his objectives through patience – by letting the failures of others become his successes. This is a controversial argument for good reason: if Hitler was an ordinary German, what does that say about average Germans and t [...]


    • Now I know what all of the fuss was about. This is less of a history lesson and more of a hand grenade tossed into the street of public opinion. Taylor liked to make pithy comments and outrageous claims; and his book set the course of writing about the origins of WWII for decades. To his credit, in 1961 the received opinion was that Hitler had a plan, kept to the schedule, and that Germany alone was guilty. The correction that Taylor made was that the inept leadership of the United Kingdom and F [...]


    • This book could have been titled "The Comedy Central Roast of British Foreign Policy in the Interwar Years." My favorite line is "[he] was as able intellectually as any British foreign secretary of the twentieth century -perhaps not a very high standard." We like to blame Hitler for World War II, but the Allied incompetence played a large part as well.


    • In this book Taylor argues that Hitler's foreign policy goals were like any other contemporary German statesman's and that World War II was just as much the fault of the allies as the Germans due to their flawed diplomacy. I think Taylor is totally wrong about Hitler, but this is a well written account and the author is on much firmer ground when discussing the general European situation after WWI and the negotiations between the Allies before 1939. Taylor's notion is that Hitler never meant wha [...]


    • A.J.P. Taylor’s publication of The Origins of the Second World War provoked controversy on its release in 1961 and gained Taylor a reputation as a revisionist. Taylor’s popularity as a broadcaster brought him into legendary television debates with the likes of Hugh Trevor-Roper and many other historians, this subject being one of the more heated arguments. General sentiment scolded Taylor for not putting enough blame on Hitler, a leader with no plan for starting the war, demonstrating no lus [...]


    • One and probably the only remarkable bright spot of this book, was its unconventional analysis of Hitler's militaristic actions and the attribution of causation to the Treaty of Versailles. Taylor argued that, contrary to traditional views which held that Hitler was an intentional warmongering madman, the seed of WWII was planted as early as 1918 and Hitler was nothing more than a catalyst -- a conclusion that I personally didn't find very revolutionary. I feel that anyone with basic understandi [...]


    • A very dense book, written in a dry style - don't expect lots of modern-style narrative, designed to put you in the room, or much in the way of first-hand accounts/dialogue.Really thorough, however, in focusing on just the bald facts of period correspondence & records and it delivers what was for the time a very bold set of conclusions about just how warlike Hitler was in the late 30s.Not having read any more recent books on the same topic, I'm unclear as to what new evidence has since come [...]


    • El libro está muy bien. Su principal desventaja es que es muy viejo. Dice de sí mismo ser una visión no tan anti-nazi respecto al porqué del inicio de la segunda guerra. No me dio la sensación de ser exageradamente pronazi ni mucho menos. No tengo la menor idea el estado actual de esa discusión. Tal vez el libro sea útil para leer ciertos pasajes en un curso sobre el Origen de la segunda guerra, pero para el lego, me parece que no valió la pena. Por varios momentos me aburrió incluso.


    • Muy buen libro que nos sumerge en los por menores de los días previos a la invasión alemana de Polonia, que desencadenarían la WW2 , este libro demuestra que Hitler no fue el total responsable , ni Francia e Inglaterra fueron tan inocentes como la historia oficial nos quiere hacer creer



    • Regardless of whether you agree with Taylor's assessment of the origins of the Second World War (or the second half of the World War, as Taylor and his disciples, such as Niall Ferguson, might say), he fulfills an important role in any review of history, and that's to question the generally agreed narrative. That's not to say that Taylor is simply being combative - he puts forth a number of interesting and thought-provoking interpretations of the reasons why the World went to war in 1939. But pe [...]


    • I have mixed feelings about this book. If you are anyway interested in 20th Century history, it's probably a must read. His thesis, that no one discusses the causes of World War II, was, no doubt, accurate when he wrote it. But by writing this, he (controversially) opened up the question, and by the time I came to study the subject for an O-level in 1984, it was old hat, even at that basic level.I suppose this is an example of why - although I am interested in history - I'm glad I'm not a histor [...]


    • THE ORIGINS OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR. (1961; this ed. 2008). A. J. P. Taylor. ****. This is not a book that you can pick up and read with no former knowledge of WW II or the various prevailing attitudes of historians after the fact. Taylor (1906-1990) was one of the most famous historians in england who dealt primarily with English history, but specialized in WW II. He became widely known because of his many appearances on TV in debates with other historians. This is the type of program that woul [...]


    • I found this book informative and frustrating in equal measure. The frustration was on no part the fault of the author, but of the people within the book whose involvement in the build up to war make you want to scream, and it’s not necessarily the people you might expect. There were so many chances to turn things around, to halt the progress to war which we are told these days, was inexorable, to conciliate, to compromise, to intervene, to act decisively. None of these opportunities were take [...]


    • Well written, well thought-out revisionist history of what engendered mankind's bloodiest conflict. While I disagree with some of Taylor's points (particularly in regards to the local situation in Danzig), and I think he doesn't stress trade wars enough, I find his thesis more convincing than that conventional version.Taylor's main point is that statesmen, even dictatorial ones, are more the creation of their countries than the other way around. Moreover, even dictators realize that while their [...]


    • Interesting book which seeks to upend the conventional narrative about the causes underlying the most devastating war in human history. At the time of its original publication in the early 1960s, this book caused quite a lot of controversy, namely because Taylor had the intellectual confidence (some would call it arrogance) to put forth an investigation of the muddled, timid diplomacy of the West in the inter-war period which pins the blame for the war on a number of actors and events on all sid [...]


    • I didn't know too much about the second world war so this was a great book for me. The writing is a little bit choppy at times but if you are interested in the subject then it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Recently I have been playing a lot of risk and trying to learn how to play axis and allies so when I saw this book I thought it would be a good idea to learn something about WWII to improve my gaming abilities. The book starts with the treaty of Versailles and ends with Germany's invasio [...]


    • Superb account of the events that lead to WW2 from mostly the European perspective. Taylor's major thesis here, and a controversial one at that, is to show how little Hitler planned the war campaign and merely had to wait for western powers to stumble over themselves like drunken tarts on high heels to give him what he wanted by using bluffs and impeccable timing.The author's withering judgment is harsh on all save the Czech leader Benes who is possibly the sole political figure to emerge from t [...]


    • Taylor's authority is etched on each page, the master of his craft as he weaves the endless bickerings, jealousies, over-strident pride and posturing of politicians and leaders between the two world wars. Though he does appear to err on the side of British thinking, this is understandable for a man of his time and with more opportunity to study primary and other historical records. In this he is helped by being a contemporary of the events, and therefore armed with his own observations pertinent [...]


    • AJ P Taylor is one of the master historians of the European era and this book is one of the clear reasons why. Taylor analyzes the data available at the time and clearly and concisely traces the reasons for the outbreak of the Second World War. Starting with the Treaty of Versailles and moving up through the new diplomatic outlook created from Locarno. The failure of the Locarno system becomes evident in the disastrous disarmament talks and the four power pact by Mussolini. Germany's rise to pow [...]


    • I first read parts of this controversial book in college many years ago. Re reading this historical book has given me a new insight into how Hitler used conventional foreign diplomacy in most instances until the Second World War started. Taylor lays out a good case that Hitler waited patiently for Austria, Czechoslovakia and the Rhineland to cave into his demands but was unwilling to pursue these goals if the British or French were serious in their threats of military intervention. This inaction [...]


    • We all know Hitler was the cause of World War II along with Japan. Don't we? This British author and academic attempts to spread the blame around. He focuses on the mistakes made by the countries of Central Europe as well as France and Germany. His thesis is Hitler had no plan for world wide conquest. Instead, he attempts to portray Hitler as a Bismarck like leader who is only interesting in building the German nation. He also asserts rather than having a plan Hitler was simply an opportunist wh [...]


    • The Origins of the Second World War was an approachable, understandable, and freestanding work of understanding the problems, and actions of European statesman following WWI and leading to the beginning of WWII. AJP Taylor tried to return to the interwar period and explain the actions of those during that time as if he did not know the outcome by using correspondence, official policy, and archives.For me, it was fascinating to see just how hectic, chaotic, and unknowable things were back then. I [...]


    • Taylor is such an excellent writer that this is a joy to read. Not only are the facts presented in a clear way but his ideas were hugely significant for revising the debate surrounding the beginnings of the war, in that he was one of the first historians to lay a large portion of the blame at the feet of France and England.As far as I can tell, the shortcomings of his thesis are:-no comment on how understanding of Hitler's domestic policy affected relations with other powers-asserting quite stro [...]


    • I'm by no means an historian. I have read a few accounts of World War 2 and some of my conclusions kind of align with Taylor's, that Hitler was not solely responsible for WW2, the allied powers have to shoulder some of the responsibility for the concessions they made to Hitler's Germany. The author does seem to make a lot of presumptions/assumptions however that I don't buy. Would the war have happened if Hitler did not become dictator? Really great question that of course we can't answer. Taylo [...]


    • Crisply written revisionist history of the origins of the Second World War. It is focussed upon the political and diplomatic situation in the window between the end of WW1 and the beginning of WW2. It is well argued but it was short and I think Taylor assumed more familiarity with the the history of the period than many people are equipt with today. I didn't know enough to tell if there were facts he was ignoring or if his interpretation of anything was particularly controversial. Still, blaming [...]


    • An excellent book. Thoroughly researched. It really puts in perspective the bungling and lack of political will that led to WWII, while making a persuasive case that Britain and France chose the wrong issue (the Polish corridor) and the wrong time for confronting Hitler. As with American policy towards Iran, it shows how lack of political will and courage when the justification for resolve is much clearer can eventually lead to confrontation on a much larger scale with much more ambivalent justi [...]


    • Certainly controversial; takes the view that many (not all) causes of the war were random and sometimes only indirectly related to the objectives of the participants. The idea isn't as new as the author thinks, but he carries it further than most. Other writers refer to Taylor's ideas as being "discredited," but he supports and explains them well--and often they have the independent merit of simply making sense.


    • "But his policy is capable of rational explanation; and it is on these that history is built" - AJP TaylorAnd yet so much of what happened was irrational and serendipitous. The detail of this book is amazing, yet the publication date of 1961 and acknowledged lapses in information from the Soviet Union leave me wondering what has since been recovered from Russian archives to round out the diplomatic maneuverings of this pre-war period.


    • Plus que cinquante ans apres sa publication en 1962, la grande these de ce livre tient toujours la route. La deuxieme grande guerre s'est declenche a cause de l'obstination des polonais qui contrairement aux Czechs ont refuse de ceder devant les pressions des francais et des anglais de ceder devant les allemands.Cette histoire raconte de facon courte, breve et efficace.
