Key moments in history are not always big. While most people recognize that Hitler's invasion of Poland in 1939 and the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941 are critical events that shaped World War II, many people don't know about the lesser though equally significant moments in WWII history, like January 16, 1945 — the day the Wannsee Conference drafted the mechanics of the Final Solution.

Defining Moments: World War II includes the following:

· A breakdown of the war into key moments, and examination of major battles, events, decisions and strategies that would define the structure of the modern world;

· A chronological overview of the events culminating in WWII, from the Treaty of Versaille in 1919 to the Nuremburg War Crimes Trials in 1945;

· Over 200 historical photographs, including gritty battlefield shots of the Allied forces and sky-view photos of the atomic attack on Hiroshima;

· Quick-read fact boxes that present critical data of key battles and events with full documentation of the participants, locations and their final outcomes.

This book is an amazing examination of World War II, providing a unique understanding of the war's global impact, and how it shaped the way we live today.
