World War II The Definitive Visual History

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 servicemen and women on the inside covers of our updated edition of the classic DK book on World War II.

Now, we're giving all who submitted photos a sneak peek at those inside cover pages. We couldn't fit every photo onto the pages shown here, 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, we're mindful of the sacrifices of so many during the war. And to all those who participated in this special project — thank you.
