about

As the largest, deadliest conflict in history, World War II was one of the defining events of the 20th century. Between 1939 and 1945, this massive conflict affected almost every corner of the globe. Readers will get an up-close look at the battles, weapons, and military forces that drove this landmark war.

On June 6, 1944, more than 150,000 Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy, France, to launch a massive attack on Nazi Germany. Readers will discover how the attack was carefully planned and carried out, from how the location was chosen to which kinds of vehicles and weapons were used. They will also learn about the battle's impact on the rest of the war and find out why it is still remembered as such an important victory today.

  • Timelines illustrate the way the war developed from start to finish
  • Glossaries explain a range of technical military terms
