World War II
World War II was a horrific deviation from our long relationship with war; new technologies and ideas were employed that resulted in widespread death and unimaginable atrocities--never before known to man. This book is a valuable resource that follows the war from the rise of Hitler to the dropping of the atomic bombs, through blitzkrieg and bombings, to the treaty that finally ended it all, noting the effects upon future world politics.
* Reviews *Series Review: America at War
"This series tells the full story of the major military conflicts of the United States like few other sets have done, while being written in a way that almost anyone could understand. Numerous illustrations and pictures aid in explaining what happened. The brief biographical sketches of nearly every major person of world importance at the time are objective and filled with detail. Many news items, speeches, and military engagements are explained in blocked text, giving the reader a better understanding of terms and events...This set provides good value for the money."
