The History of World War II: The Defining Conflict of the 20th Century Day-by-Day
David Jordan (Author)
DescriptionWorld War II remains the largest conflict humanity has ever seen, both in terms of scale and loss of life. The war involved virtually every part of the world during the years 1939-1945. But from Norway to Mandalay, from Stalingrad to Tobruk, from Manchuria to Uruguay, it is also an immense war to try to understand. A perfect introduction to the conflict, The History of World War II is an authoritative, accessible and short narrative giving a history of events as they occurred. This fascinating book is divided into two parts, structured chronologically. Part I follows the European, Mediterranean and Africa theatres of war, while Part II examines the conflict in the Pacific. Throughout the book there is a timeline putting key events into historical context. There are also 200 full-colour artworks and colour and black-and-white archive photographs. Expertly and objectively told by Dr David Jordan, The History of World War II provides an excellent account of the causes of the war, how it developed into a global conflict, how its campaigns fared, and how it changed the map of the world.
