Was World War II Unnecessary?

Anthony Gregory has a three part review of Patrick Buchanan's book Churchill, Hitler, and the Unnecessary War: How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World.

Part I, Part II, and Part III

The review is a summary and critique of Buchanan's thesis that the war was unnecessary and ultimately failed to accomplish the intended purpose--removing a totalitarian regime in Europe.

I hope to read the book some day (it's on the increasingly long list), but I recommend at least reading the review--you just might be persuaded that World War II was an unnecessary war that we all would have been better off not fighting.
