Summary

World War II Day by Day is a chronological history of the second World War from the beginning of the Nazi’s campaign in Poland in September 1939 to the surrender of Japan in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945.

With over 400 photographs conveying the war’s drama and tragedy and maps to give you a clearer understanding of the intricate campaigns, all major war theaters are covered, as is the fighting in the air and the sea. The dated entries, written as though they have just happened, recapture the immediacy of the war as they analyze the major battles and campaigns, including Stalingrad, Kursk, Midway, D-Day, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, and Berlin.

Longer features on various aspects of the conflict accompany each entry. You will see the war’s decisive weapons, strategic decisions, and policies. There are also biographical entries on the individuals who shaped and prosecuted the war in both Europe and the Pacific theaters: leaders such as Chamberlain, Stalin, Zhukov, MacArthur, Hitler, Manstein, and Eisenhower.

The Day by Day series brings order to the messy business of war. These hardcover reference titles examine the evolution of wars in a chronological timeline, from the first skirmishes to the final battles. The fate of soldiers, battalions, armies, can change in the blink of an eye—with these comprehensive books, you can follow the conflicting sides in their strategy, weaponry, and policies. Each book is dedicated to constructing a historical timeline composed of photographs and documents to give you a full picture of landmark events that have shaped world history. 
 
Also in this series: Civil War Day by Day, World War I, D-Day Day by Day, Stalingrad Day by Day, Pacific War Day by Day, Third Reich Day by Day, and Vietnam War Day by Day.
