The Second World War 1939-45 by Pam Robson


The Second World War 1939-45 by Pam Robson

This book is ideal for school project work or for those who want an 'at-a-glance' overview of the Second World War. Complete with descriptions of the key events of the war, it tracks the progress of the battles and investigates how peace was finally achieved. The timeline, glossary and clearly-headed spreads make it easy to refer to essential dates, facts and personalities. Maps, contemporary photography, paintings, posters and pictures of artefacts all help bring the topic to life.
