About World War II Map by Map

The deadliest war in history brought to life through bold, easy-to-grasp maps

In this stunning visual history book, purpose-made maps reveal the full story of the Second World War. From the rise of the Axis powers to the aftermath of the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima, this book shows how each step of the action took place. Each map is full of detail, charting the progress of the key events of World War II on land, sea, and air, including the Dunkirk evacuation, the attack on Pearl Harbor, the D-Day landings, the siege of Stalingrad, and the war in the Pacific.

As well as purpose-made maps, historical maps from both Allied and Axis countries give compelling insights into the course of the war. There are also timelines summarizing each stage of the conflict as it unfolded, while fascinating, large-scale photographs offer a closer look at life both on and off the battlefield, introducing topics such as blitzkrieg tactics, civilian life in wartime, code-breaking, and more.

Written by a team of historians headed by Richard Overy as consultant, World War II Map by Map shows how the deadliest conflict in history changed the face of our world. It is perfect for general readers, students, and military history enthusiasts everywhere. Includes a foreword by Peter Snow, broadcaster and historian.
