Product description

If you're interested in the story behind the deadliest conflict in human history, or are just curious about facts and figures, then this is the book for you. In this easy-to-read and fascinating compilation, "The Second World War" is broken down into an array of topics, revealing such statistics as who were the best fighter aces, what were the top ten military blunders during the war, and which were the biggest battleships or the best tanks. There are lists of the various escape attempts from Colditz, the code names used for military operations and even which actors have ever played Hitler on screen. All the major events and dates in the war are covered in detail, but equal emphasis is placed on the human experience of combat in the field and on the home front. Often poignant and always revealing, "World War II: The Book of Lists" offers a unique insight into those tumultuous years.
