Description

This Date-Line Diary of World War II records all major political decisions and military encounters throughout this horrendous world war. There were sixty million military and civilian casualties during the eight years of merciless massacre. Over 130 countries were embroiled in the two-ocean conflict. The horror that civilians encountered in Europe and Asia was unspeakable. The Holocaust, POW prisons, mass slayings of women and children were beyond belief. The diary goes several steps further to include the deliberation of compelling events of our lives at home all during the war. The United States population then was just over 130 million Americans, and they all responded with their personal true-grit dedication and full-time patriotism during those terrible years. At the same time we had at-home events and our admired personalities. Included here are brief profiles of the famous and the infamous. Also, our shared distractions, year-by-year, with popular movies, best-selling novels, favorite film and radio stars, so many of them appearing at War Bond Drives across the nation. And many in uniform. The major battles are detailed in separate sections by date, even some by time-line. And we had those hundreds of those marvelous and awe-inspiring songs - all major hits of the late 30's and 40's. The diary is formatted in an easy-study report format detailing every event by year and by date.show more
