About this Book:
The greatest and most destructive war in history, World War II involved gigantic struggles not only in Europe, but in Asia, Africa, and islands of the South Pacific as well. Peter Copeland presents a graphic overview of this historic conflict in dramatic portrayals of air, land, and sea battles, and other major events — from the German invasion of Poland in 1939 to the Japanese surrender aboard the USS Missouri in August 1945.
Forty-five ready-to-color illustrations depict exciting scenes from these events: Battle of Britain; Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor; General Rommel's desert campaigns; sinking of the German battleship Bismark; Battle of Stalingrad; allied invasion of France; Battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa; fall of Berlin; dropping of atomic bomb over Hiroshima; and many more.
An informative caption accompanies each powerful, meticulously rendered illustration.
