DK Salutes Our Heroes

DK Salutes Our Heroes

Did you have a parent, grandparent, or other relative who served in World War II? Last fall, we sent out a call to be part of a special project here at DK. We planned to feature portraits of those servicemen and servicewomen on the inside covers of our updated edition of our classic DK book World War II: The Definitive Visual History.

Now we're sharing those inside cover pages as a salute to our heroes. We couldn't fit every photo onto the pages, but we have collected all the submissions on our Facebook page in an online tribute.

As we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II this year, we're mindful of the sacrifices of so many during the war. And to all those who     participated — thank you.
