Overview

From the very personal - two German soldiers relaxing in front of a Russian grave, a mechanic at work in the engine room of a U-boat - to the epic proportions of mass conflict - the wasteland of a bombed out French village, a view of thousands at Nuremberg - this powerful visual testimony to WWII shows for the first time the reality of Germany at war. Many images in this collection of over 250 rare color photographs have remained unseen for decades. Following on the success of America at War in Color and the Imperial War Museum's Second World War in Photographs, Germany at War documents the rise of Nazism, life at home during wartime, the persecution of the Jews and others, scenes of occupied France, the Wehrmacht celebrating their early victories and the devastation on the Eastern Front.

Meet the Author

George Forty OBE served for thirty years as a British army officer in the Royal Tank Regiment before becoming curator of the Bovington Tank Museum, where he was the inspiration for its growth in the 1980s and 1990s. His first book was on the Desert Rats (with whom he served postwar) and were published by Ian Allan in 1976; since then he has written over fifty more, including "Patton's Third Army at War," and handbooks of the World War II armies of Britain, Japan, and the United States.

As a pediatrician, writer, wife, and mother, Perri Klass has demonstrated how medicine is integral to the health of families and communities, and how doctors themselves struggle to balance the conflicting needs of profession, self, and family. As medical director of Reach Out and Read, she encourages other pediatricians to foster pre-reading skills in their young patients. While earning her M.D. at Harvard, Klass contributed articles to "Mademoiselle" and "The New York Times" as well as to scientific and medical journals. She also wrote her first book, "A Not Entirely Benign Procedure "(1987), which chronicles her introduction to medicine and motherhood. In the following years she has continued to publish books, essays, award-winning short stories, a novel, and numerous articles, ranging from professional papers to popular journalism and travel pieces.
