Review:

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
