The History of World War IIby Eddy Bauer, Peter Young
The History of World War II describes in depth the events and participants of the major war of the twentieth century, a war that saw almost fifty million soldiers and civilians die, and dwarfed its predecessor of 1914-18 in terms of the misery and destruction it caused for mankind. The book explores every major event and action of the war: the early lightning advances of the Germans in Europe and the Japanese in Asia; the entry of the United States and the USSR into the war with the attacks on Pearl Harbor and the Soviet Union itself respectively; the turn of the tide at the battles of Stalingrad, Midway and El Alamein; the collapse of the Axis powers after D-Day and the capture of Iwo Jima; and the end of the war after the death of Hitler and the dropping of the Atomic bomb.
