This book contains details about WWII.

I quite enjoyed this book, it was a bit superficial and was a bit chaotic (in terms of layout) but it still contained some interesting details.

Our kids have a whole set of these books, but I've steered clear of them mostly because of the magazine-like format. Will brought this home and I picked it up one night and couldn't put it down. The content is choppy, but the pictures are amazing and the writing feels balanced. This was a difficult topic to aim at school-age children, and yet it didn't feel too gory or too saccharine. I learned a whole lot and I recommend it as a great cliff notes on WWII.

OK I know these are supposed to be kid books but they are awesome! Great pictures and just enough text to make you want to learn more. Great choices for a beginning history reader or to start an older reader out in a new area. Every time I pick one of these up and read it I learn new things. Did you know that German women during the war were awarded medals based on the number of children they had to replenish the German Army. Highly Recommended

This book is all about WWII. It shows lots of facts and things that nobody would ever know.This book is also great for people to right a report on it and shows definitely. It also has a lot about the depression and how it started and ended. Adolf Hitler was a man slaughterer and he was a very bad person but, in German people heads.....he was the Fuhrer.

For someone wanting to introduce WW2 to young readers, this is a great starter book. Filled with amazing photographs, the reader can slowly turn pages and see how the work began, continued and ended for so many different ages and genres of people. Great book for all ages but mostly suited to preteens.

This was a great book. From the start of the war, to propaganda posters, to the atomic bomb explosions in Japan, I enjoyed it. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in World War II. I really wish I could read this book all over again, and get some more facts.

This is more of a reference book. I'm trying to read it as a novel, but it's just so hard, because its set up with pictures and different information scattered accross the pages in no particular order.

بالرغم من انه
اجمالى غير تفصيلى
امتاعى غير تاصيلى
الا انه
رائع من غير تحليلى
مفضل من غير تأويلى

بمعنى انه يزودك بصور ومعلومات اساسية ومحورية فى الاحداث الا انها لا تغنى عن اى تفاصيل ولا تكتفى بها
