World War II in Europe: From Normandy to Berlin

by R. Conrad Stein
 

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
The Second World War claimed over fifty million lives and devastated large swathes of several nations. In the former Soviet Union, over twenty million civilians and soldiers died in a campaign that was epic in its brutality. Nations such as Britain, Germany, and France suffered vast destruction and significant loss of human life due to aerial bombing. The Holocaust represented the destruction of over six million European Jews and countless other people drawn from the ranks of political opponents, Gypsies, homosexuals, and other human beings deemed "undesirable" by the Nazi overlords. It is sweeping and tragic events such as these that are catalogued in this illustrated history. Stein takes his readers on a journey back in time to an age when totalitarian forces were on the march toward apparent victory. Then, after great sacrifice, the armed forces and home fronts of the Allies beat back that tide of advance. Ultimately, as Stein vividly describes in this fine book, the Nazis were utterly defeated. Stein tells this story of European combat in a striking way. The words of actual participants are prominently featured in the narrative. Stein also uses an adept writing style to depict events that bore great human cost within them. This is a fine historical work that will appeal to readers interested in military history.
