Product description


John Malam, with support from the Imperial War Museum, has produced a fantastic picture book which covers the bases in a brisk but elegant fashion. It contains photographs, documents, maps, posters, paintings and pithy fact boxes. Vital reading for anyone aged 7-107. --The Times

Clever use of photographs, newspaper cuttings and clearly laid out text gives a concise but incisive account of the elements of the war with just enough depth to be informative without being overwhelming. --Ham & High 31 07 14
