World War II was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945

World War II was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. Rising to power in an unstable Germany, Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist (Nazi Party) rearmed the nation and signed treaties with Italy and Japan to further his ambitions of world domination. Hitler’s invasion of Poland drove Great Britain and France to declare war on Germany, and World War II had begun. The majority of the world's countries eventually formed two opposing alliances: the Allies and the Axis.

World War II: The Unseen Visual History draws on a unique and rich trove of historical images and artifacts of World War II, collected in Caen, France, one of the cities devastated by that pivotal conflict. In the form of a concise historical atlas—replete with full-color maps; rare color photographs; period artwork; timelines; and reproductions of fascinating letters, documents, and historical objects—this beautiful, cutting-edge history offers a completely new overview of the modern era’s most destructive war, with visual material previously unavailable to a U.S. audience. Each brief section of World War II guides readers through a specific aspect of the war—such as the Nazi invasion of the USSR, the Holocaust, and the Japanese assault on Nanking—through timelines, short image captions, explanatory sidebars, annotated maps, and a carefully assembled selection of archival graphics. This compact narrative takes in the full scope of the wartime experience from the rise of Nazism, the invasion of France, the Battle of Britain, and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor through the Normandy landings and the Allied defeat of Germany and Japan. A true global history, the book also covers broader themes and experiences, including life under occupation, aerial bombing and nuclear weapons, war crimes and postwar trials, and the role of the war in anticolonial movements in Africa and Asia.

To be frank, I expected more. The book does cover the entire war in Europe, so I found the title misleading, what happened to the Pacific Theatre? While the pictures ( not all) were new, possibly they were unpublished due to being static. I sympathize with those who worked on this book, it's hard, almost impossible, to condense the enormity of the subject in 160 pages and that, only part of the whole story. Even the subtitle was given short shrift.
