A stunning new look at the most spectacular campaigns of World War II, this book uses incredible computer graphics to recreate every detail of the most significant battles and strategies. Topography and troop strength, illustrations and maps of actions carried out are presented with the latest technology down to the smallest detail.From School Library Journal:
YA-These two volumes, originally published in England, are fascinating to look at as well as intriguing to read. Using newly developed computer graphics applications to topography, they present striking illustrations of land battles, thus providing new perspectives for study and understanding. This would be quite exciting in itself, but the books also include many other excellent illustrations, maps, diagrams, photographs, and portraits, both in words and pictures, of those involved in these historic actions. The texts are easy to read and interesting; boxes and sidebars add significant information in inviting bites. Great Commanders covers battles and their leaders from Alexander the Great to Moshe Dayen and the Sinai Campaign in 1956. Much of the coverage is European, but some Asian campaigns are included. There is a definite English point of view. The history, however, is carefully presented and the opponents in each situation are profiled and placed in context. World War II includes photographs and explications of weapons and equipment. Additionally, much information is provided about the home fronts and propaganda from each side. In both of these volumes, the computer-enhanced "pictures" of the battles are in color and clearly described. There are, as well, many other illustrations in color and all are clear and well reproduced. These should prove to be most helpful for assignments as well as for pleasure reading.
