It’s an intriguing insight on the major events during the war as it was fought in Europe and across the world. Naval engagements also appear in this book on World War 2, including the sinking of the Graf Spee, Scharnhorst and the Bismarck, the bombing of Pearl Harbour, and the oceanic battles of both the Atlantic and the Pacific.

This World War II book begins on the 2nd September 1939 with the Nazi invasion of Poland. It encompasses various major events of the war in Europe including the rescue at Dunkirk, the D-day landings, the Allied invasion of Italy, the advance into Germany, and finally VE Day. This book on the Second World War also includes World War 2 newspaper clippings of other major engagements across the world; the North African campaigns, the fall of Hong Kong and Singapore, the fighting in Burma, and the bombing and surrender of Japan.
