520    World War II remains the largest conflict humanity has 
       ever seen, both in terms of scale and loss of life. The 
       war involved virtually every part of the world during the 
       years 1939 --1945. But from Norway to Mandalay, from 
       Stalingrad to Tobruk, from Manchuria to Uruguay, the sheer
       geographical scale of the war makes it difficult to follow
       simultaneous events as they happened around the globe. A 
       perfect introduction to the conflict, A Chronology of 
       World War II is an authoritative, accessible and short 
       narrative giving a history of events as they occurred. 
       This fascinating book is divided into two parts, 
       structured chronologically. Part I follows the European, 
       Mediterranean and Africa theatres of war, while Part II 
       examines the conflict in the Pacific.  Throughout the book
       there is a timeline putting key events into historical 
       context. There are also 200 full-colour artworks and 
       colour and black-and-white archive photographs. Expertly 
       and objectively told by Dr David Jordan, A Chronology of 
       World War II provides an excellent account of the causes 
       of the war, how it developed into a global conflict, how 
       its campaigns fared, and how it changed the map of the 
       world. -- Publisher's description.
