Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Visually stunning, The American Heritage New History of World War II features more than 700 of the most dramatic and haunting photographs from renowned war photographers on the line of battle, from artists who captured the quintessence of war on canvas, and from cartoonists who portrayed the lighter side of war for millions on the front lines and at home. These images, which complement the narrative throughout, have been culled from public and private collections all over the world. New computer-generated color maps also highlight important battles for a better understanding of these complex military campaigns. Just in time for the next generation, this edition captures the courage, commitment, military genius, and true horror of the war that gave birth to a new era in world politics. For students, history buffs, veterans, and fascinated readers, The American Heritage New History of World War II is the definitive single-volume compendium on the subject and will endure as a major narrative of world history.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 607-608) and index.

Patrick Fontaine, September 6, 2011 (view all comments by Patrick Fontaine)
American Heritage writes the best comprehensive books on historical subjects. If you want a broad book that covers the entire conflict then this is the best one by far. It covers everything from the very beginings of tension to the armistice. No book covers so much yet also contains many small details and facts to make it interesting to the bigger WWII buffs. Also the way American Heritage breaks up the chapters with many large pictures is a great way to keep the reader's minds fresh and intrigued.
