Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the outbreak of the War, this is designed to be the ultimate reference book on the subject. Over 3000 entries provide coverage of the conflict - battles and campaigns, personalities, arms and equipment, codewords and propaganda of the War on land, at sea and in the air. The text is aimed at the general reader, though it contains a range and depth of detailed facts, figures and analysis which should appeal to the specialist as well. There are over 400 contemporary photographs, many of which have never before appeared in print. Ther are over 100 diagrams of weaponry drawn especially for the book, together with maps and charts to bring battles and strategy to life.show more
