The greatest and most destructive war in history, World War II involved gigantic struggles not only in Europe, but in Asia, Africa, and the 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 invasions 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 Bismarck
Battle of Stalingrad
Allied invasion of France
Battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa
Fall of Berlin
Dropping of the atomic bomb over Hiroshima
… and many more.

An informative caption accompanies each powerful, meticulously rendered illustration. Softcover, 48 pages, 45 illustrations.
