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

Nice brief history of most of the important events that happened during the war.
Like all Eyewitness Books, this one is awesome & has great photos.
Good information for a nice short and sweet quick read
