About this title


A comprehensive and riveting account of the six-year global conflict that transformed world politics and shaped the course of modern history includes hundreds of haunting images from renowned war photographers.


The first edition of this book sold more than one million copies in 35 years and helped shape the way Americans remembered a recent war. Now thoroughly revised by the acclaimed historian Stephen E. Ambrose to help introduce a new generation of readers to the Second World War, this book tells the story of Blitzkreig, Pearl Harbor, D-Day, and Hiroshima better than any other. In words and pictures, it relates an epic struggle between the dueling forces of communism, fascism, and democracy. There is simply no better introduction to that titanic conflict available, and an estimated 70 percent of its text is new material by Ambrose. All ages can enjoy it, but the heavy graphic element makes this volume especially appealing to mature kids with an interest in history.
