World War II Day by Day is a chronological history of the second Great War, from September 1939 to the surrender of Japan on September 2, 1945.
World War II Day by Day is a chronological history of the second World War from the beginning of the Nazi's campaign in Poland in September 1939 to the surrender of Japan in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945. All major war theaters are covered, as is the fighting in the air and the sea. The dated entries, written as though they have just happened, recapture the immediacy of the war as they analyze the major battles and campaigns, including Stalingrad, Kursk, Midway, D-Day, Iwo Jima, Okinawa and Berlin.
Longer features on various aspects of the conflict accompany each entry. You will see the war's decisive weapons, strategic decisions, and policies. There are also biographical entries on the individuals who shaped and prosecuted the war in both Europe and the Pacific theaters: leaders such as Chamberlain, Stalin, Zhukov, MacArthur, Hitler, Manstein, and Eisenhower.
The hardcover reference titles in the Day by Day series examine the evolution of wars in a chronological timeline, from the first skirmishes to the final battles. The fate of soldiers, battalions, armies, can change in the blink of an eye—with these comprehensive books, you can follow the conflicting sides in their strategy, weaponry, and policies.
