Read full description of the books:
Sixty years after Pearl Harbor, history continues to to honor the brave men and women who stepped forward to defend their homes, families, and beliefs against the hatred, intolerance, and jingoism that threatened to rob the world of its humanity. The cost of ultimate victory was obscene, as approximately 60 million people died in the struggle to determine the future of civilization. Those who survived carry the physical and emotional scars as daily reminders of the price of freedom.
This volume tells the history of mankind's greatest catastrophe in 23 insightful essays and more than 800 compelling photographs of the war's key figures, the unknown soldiers who fought the battles, and the unfortunate civilians who lived amongst the carnage.
An Illustrated History of World War II captures the drama and pathos of the major battlesStalingrad, El Alamein, Midway, the Ardennes, and othersas well as the war's key moments, including Adolf Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union, the Allies' adoption of a "Europe first" strategy, and the anguished decision to use the atomic bomb.
