In 1939 the world was in turmoil - Europe had declared war, and in the years to come, countries like Japan and the United States would also join the global conflict. In collaboration with the Imperial War Museum, readers can take a trip back in time and learn about the factors that lead up Pearl Harbour, the Battle of Britain, the D-day invasion, and how the atomic bomb almost wiped out Japan.
World War II also gave rise to many advancements in science and technology and saw women work outside of the home. Children will learn about the industries developed during the war, code-breakers, important leaders, facts about warfare, weaponry, vehicles, maps, secret documents, and atrocities such as the Holocaust. Filled with simple text and eye-catching photographs and illustrations, kids will come to understand how WWII reshaped the world.
With a groundbreaking visual approach and clear, child-friendly text, DK Eyewitness books have been a trusted favourite for parents, teachers, and school-age children since 1985. Now with an exciting makeover, this popular series has been reinvigorated for the next generation of information-seekers and stay-at-home explorers!
