Description

World War II remains the greatest conflict humanity has seen, both in terms of scale and loss of life. The Chronology of World War II is the perfect introduction to understanding the war, an authoritative narrative giving a history of events as they occurred. The book is divided into two parts: part one examines the European theatre 1939-1945, part two the Pacific theatre 1939-1945. At the foot of each text page is a timeline linking events happening elsewhere at the time in that theatre to give a greater geographical and historical perspective to the war. Throughout there are box features and more than 300 full-colour artworks and archive photographs. Packed with outstanding photographs, artworks and written as an easily accessible narrative, The Chronology of World War II is a fantastic book for any general reader or history enthusiast.
