"The Second World War: The Complete Illustrated History" covers the whole six-year global conflagration that shattered and then re-shaped the world. From the German blitzkrieg against Poland in September 1939, to the surrender of Japan following the dropping of atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki almost exactly six years later. Written by the leading Second World War historian Richard Overy, each spread introduces another fascinating aspect of this world-encompassing conflict. We are taken to all corners of the globe, from the Battle of the River Plate in the South Atlantic Ocean, to the bloody battles fought over the Solomon Islands and New Guinea just off the northern tip of Australia, to the German occupation of Norway in the North, and the Allied invasion of Madagascar in the south Indian Ocean. 2009 marks the 70th anniversary of the start of the Second World War and the outstanding text and photographic documentation of this title will appeal to all sectors of the military history market: from youngsters drawn to the subject for the first time to aficionados.
