The Second World War In Photographs Summary

The Second World War In Photographs by Richard Holmes

"If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then The Second World War in Photographs would be the most compendious war history yet..."

The Daily Mail

As we approach the 70th Anniversary of D-Day and the steady Allied push to victory, it is timely to reflect on the greatest military conflict of all time. Written by leading military historian Richard Holmes, this book presents a selection of images year by year, covering every theatre of operations. The images are largely drawn from the immense collection of the Imperial War Museum in London, and include many rare photographs. Dramatic, hard-hitting and intensely moving, this is a unique visual testament to the millions of men and women who lived through or lost their lives in the war, and a reminder to today's generations of both the heroism and horror of global conflict.
