‘What began as a European Civil War’

Living History

Below is a quote from May 2013 Military History magazine editorial by Dr Neil Faulker.

“The Second World War was never a single conflict. What began as a European civil war evolved… so when Churchill spoke of the ‘end of the beginning’, he was expressing a very British view. Alamein was indeed the end of the long ‘beginning’ before the might of Russia and american began to tell.’

Other than obvious…. factual issues surrounding the above, I wondered what people’s thoughts were on the (personally) nonsensical description of a ‘European civil war’ often advocated by some American scholars, but rarely, as in this case a British lecturer at Bristol.
