Follow the course of the Second World War by its major battles.
This compact gift book takes thirty of World War II's most significant clashes, both the famous and the lesser known, and presents their stories in a concise, easy to digest format, accompanied by beautiful Osprey artwork plates in full colour that illuminate a key moment in each battle.
World War II was the single greatest conflict the world has ever known, fought in theatres all around the globe, and many of its battles - Stalingrad, Monte Cassino, the Battle of Britain - are household names. While the Western Front in Europe is often what first comes to mind, bitter and bloody battles were also fought in Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, on land, at sea, and in the air, and their many stories help illuminate both the scale and the varying character of the conflict.
