David Edgerton's bold, compelling new history shows the conflict in a new light, with Britain as a very wealthy country, formidable in arms, ruthless in pursuit of its interests and sitting at the heart of a global production system/5.

One of the main arguments in this book is the importance of modernisation to the British idea of war. Edgerton successfully portrays Britain as a modern nation, where the ideas and wisdom of scientists are accepted by the government in order to perfect Britain’s war machine.

Now, in Britain's War Machine, he dismisses Barnett as a "declinist" and does not engage with his detailed arguments at all, yet the whole book is.

In this, the first of two planned volumes, he succeeds Reviews: GUARDIAN BOOKS OF THE YEAR The familiar image of the British in the Second World War is that of the plucky underdog taking on German might.

David Edgerton's bold, compelling new history shows the conflict in a new light, with Britain as a very wealthy country, formidable in arms, ruthless in pursuit of its interests and sitting at the heart of a global production system. Britain's War Machine is a stimulating exercise in muscular revisionism.

Yet I feel at times that Edgerton – an outstanding historian of science and technology – distorts the nature of war.

The familiar image of the British in the Second World War is that of the plucky underdog taking on German might. David Edgerton's bold, compelling new history shows the conflict in a new light, with Britain as a very wealthy country, formidable in arms, ruthless in pursuit of its interests, and in command of a global production system.
