Now, with exactly one hundred volumes to choose from, there is a perfect gift for everyone.

Drawn from wartime newspaper and magazine reports, radio transcripts, and books, this unique two-volume anthology collects 191 pieces by eighty writers recording events from the Munich crisis to the birth of the nuclear age.
