Synopsis: "If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then The Second World War in Photographs would be the most compendious war history yet..." (The Daily Mail). As we approach the 70th Anniversary of D-Day and the steady Allied push to victory, it is timely to reflect on the greatest military conflict of all time. Written by leading military historian Richard Holmes, this book presents a selection of images year by year, covering every theatre of operations. The images are largely drawn from the immense collection of the Imperial War Museum in London, and include many rare photographs. Dramatic, hard-hitting and intensely moving, this is a unique visual testament to the millions of men and women who lived through or lost their lives in the war, and a reminder to today's generations of both the heroism and horror of global conflict.
About the Author: Professor Richard Holmes is author of a string of bestsellers, including Tommy: The British Soldier on the Western Front (HarperCollins 2004) and a new edition of The World at War (Ebury Press 2008).

For the first time in its history the Imperial War Museum is collaborating on a book that presents 500 of the best black-and-white and colour images from its huge photographic archive, many of which have never been previously published. It is not simply a view of the war from the Allied perspective: the images come from the collections on every side of the war - including Russian, German and Japanese.
