World War II in Photographsby Richard Holmes, Imperial War Museum
As we approach the 70th anniversary of the start of World War II, interest in the greatest military conflict of all time remains stronger than ever. Richard Holmes, one of Britain’s finest military historians—assisted by the research staff of the Imperial War Museum—takes us on a photographic look back at the confrontation. In year-by-year chapters, from 1939–45, this breathtaking volume covers every theater of operations. Dramatic, hard hitting, and intensely moving, this is a unique visual testament to the millions who lost their lives in the war, and a reminder of both the heroism and horror of global combat.
