In World War II, primary sources, historical examination, and illustrations explore the causes, strategies, and resolutions of the largest conflict in human history. Alongside the comprehensive text studying the major battles, powers, and people affected by World War II, over three hundred illustrations and graphics bear witness to real individuals, places, and moments on the battlefield. Fact boxes tell the stories of the political leaders on all sides, and dynamic maps display the battles and movements of troops and fleets. These powerful primary sources and evidence combine to create a candid and expansive representation of the soldiers lives, the Holocaust, and the ways the world was transformed.
