Overview

World War II: 1939-1945 by James I Robertson, Mort Kunstler

World War II: 1939–1945 takes readers on a vivid journey through the most important events of the conflict, with illustrations by Mort Künstler—one of American’s foremost historical painters—and an inquiry-based text by renowned historian James I. Robertson, Jr. Young readers are encouraged to look for details and discover key moments of the war—including Pearl Harbor, D-Day, and the Battle of the Bulge—to learn how it really felt to be there. A timeline and short biographies of notable figures, such as Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, provide excellent supplements to each chapter.

From high-action combat to soldiers reflecting post-battle, each scene captures a historically accurate, visually rich portrait of the war. No other living historical artist is as celebrated as Künstler, and his work continues to attract history lovers of all ages.
