"World War II: 365 Days" is a unique compilation of more than 500 artefacts that illustrates the complex and epic conflict of World War II, one of the most significant moments of the 20th Century.
Drawn from the Library of Congress' vast collection of material, the book includes colour photographs, lithographs, political cartoons and maps.
Moving photographs of soldiers storming the beaches of Normandy, a startling image of Hitler speaking to an enthralled group of Nazi soldiers and a colourful propaganda poster urging the peasants of Russia to join the communist movement all help illustrate the tremendous economic, industrial and social impact the war had on all the nations involved.
Weaving together letters, speeches and first person narratives, author Margaret Wagner's revealing text captures the drama of the war and organises the events in twelve chapters with a running timeline to highlight the war's most pivotal moments.
