Product Description

From Amazon

Take an eyewitness view of the complexities, atrocities, and heroics of war with World War II, from DK's Eyewitness series. In keeping with all the books in this remarkable reference collection, pages are jam-packed with crisp, vivid photographs, illustrations, documents, and maps, as well as fascinating narrative and captions. Under chapter headings such as "A world divided," "Bombing raids," "Women at work," "Road to Stalingrad," "Propaganda and morale," "The Holocaust," "D-Day invasion," and "The atomic bomb," the events of the war are described and illustrated in compelling detail. Readers learn about life under German occupation, remarkable secret inventions (poison pens, matchbox cameras, pipes with a secret compartment), how soldiers managed to overcome the enemy, what the inside of a British midget submarine looked like, and much more. World War II changed the course of history forever--this stunning book illuminates the people, places, and events that played a part in this unforgettable drama. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

Another good book in the Eyewitness Series. This book does a good job of condensing the vast amount of information available on WWII and, as usual, the pictures tell the story in an interesting way for children. We collect Eyewitness Books and my kids were so glad to see this book and the others on WWI, the Civil War and the American Revolution.

HASH(0x99e7593c) out of 5 stars good read Jan. 19 2011
By Terry C. Johnston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This particular book is very popular with the boys at our school. So I was very pleased I could replace it when the one we had, had become beyond help to continue circulating it. So I am pleased that I could find another in very good shape to replace it with. I was surprised at the CD and had to remove that, otherwise it would have been removed by the kids and we'd never see it again. But thank you for the prompt shipment of this book.

Very informative book that I'm giving to my grandson for his 10th birthday. It is chock full of pictures and the sequence of events is well done. My grandson is a WWII buff so he'll be delighted with this book.

HASH(0x99e8d048) out of 5 stars Great book. Jan. 19 2014
By sharon mohon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I originally bought the book for my grandson. He was always asking me questions about the history of wars in America. So I bought him several Eyewitness books on the various wars.
What I found it that the books included wonderful pictures plus the informative information. I read every one of them along with him.
I just wish the books would have gone into more detail with more pictures, but then I had to remember that this is a book for children...although I enjoyed them as much as my grandson did.

HASH(0x99e8d474) out of 5 stars 7 year old loves it Aug. 28 2012
By M&I's Mummy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My 7 1/2 year old son loves this book. We read two pages at bedtime every night. He is so interested in it that he is prepared to make the effort and read the first few sentences himself in order to get me to read the rest. He is not so keen on reading yet, so this is a big deal for us.
