about this item

See the history of World War II in an entirely new way: through 100 carefully chosen items, from the public to the deeply, poignantly personal.
Selected by two specialists in military history, this book offers a unique perspective on the Second World War by tracing its history through objects—from iconic items like the British Spitfire, the Purple Heart, and ******’s mountain retreat, to personal treasures that tell the moving stories of individuals, to official documents, medals, and badges. Organized chronologically, each one is accompanied by a brief description that highlights the article’s significance.
