Synopsis

World War II Almanac by Keith D. Dickson

World War II was a major turning point in 20th-century history, as America became a superpower and the battle between the allies and the axis powers determined the fate of nations for many years to come. As part of Facts On File's Almanacs of American Wars series, the World War II Almanac contains a detailed, day-by-day chronology of the events and the people involved in this monumental war. An A-to-Z dictionary of the people and types of weaponry employed is included as well as appendix materials, which help bring this period to vivid life. Black-and-white photographs and illustrations and an extensive bibliography complete this accessible two-volume set and are useful tools for further research. Coverage includes: The attack on Pearl Harbor; Battle of Iwo Jima; Winston Churchill; Dresden bombing; Dwight D. Eisenhower; Flying Tigers; The Holocaust; Douglas MacArthur; Manhattan Project; Navajo code talkers; Normandy landings (D-day); Erwin Rommel; Tuskegee Airmen; and, more.
