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.
