World War II: The Unseen Visual History assembles a unique and rich trove of historical images and artifacts of World War II, collected in Caen, France, one of the cities devastated by that pivotal conflict. Including imagery that has never before been available to U.S. audiences as well as a concise historical atlas—replete with full-color maps, rare color photographs, period artwork, timelines, and reproductions of fascinating letters, documents and historical objects—this beautiful and cutting-edge history offers a completely new overview of the modern era’s most destructive war.
Each section of World War II guides us through a specific aspect of the war through timelines, short image captions, explanatory sidebars, annotated maps and a carefully assembled selection of archival graphics. This compact narrative takes in the full scope of the wartime experience, from the rise of Nazism, through the Allied defeat of Germany and Japan. A true global history, the book also covers broader themes and experiences, including life under occupation, aerial bombing and nuclear weapons, war crimes and postwar trials, and the role of the war in anti-colonial movements in Africa and Asia.
