The Shock of War provides a concise yet wide-ranging analysis of the impact of the Second World War on civilians. Examining developments in Asia, Europe, North America, and the European colonial empires, it shows how the demands of wartime mobilization affected ordinary peoples' lives, how people managed the burdens of foreign occupation, the responses of civilians to military campaigns and atrocities, and the aftermath of the war from a civilian perspective.While many existing studies acknowledge the significance of the war for civilians, The Shock of War shifts focus by placing civilians at the centre of events. Sean Kennedy emphasizes the diversity of situations, drawing attention to the many different regions of the world affected by the conflict and comparing various facets of the civilian experience. The Shock of War also shows that while the conflict created the demand for social unity, it also led to many pressures and divisions within wartime societies.
