Collins Atlas of World War II

A stunning visual account of the greatest conflict in world history.

The Second World War is the largest event in the history of mankind. No populated continent was untouched by its operations, and the political structure of the postwar world has been largely determined by its outcome. The global nature of the war, and the ambitions of the belligerents, meant that it was fought on a scale that, even today, confounds the imagination. It was a stimulus to unparalleled economic activity and provoked the most important clash of ideologies experienced by the world since the Crusades.

The Collins Atlas of World War II furthers our understanding of the war that forever changed our world. The scale and scope of the war is examined here in graphic form, with maps that trace the military campaigns as well as the social and political developments. Authoritative text addresses the issues and events leading to war and all of the clashes and challenges during wartime.

  • More than 125 full-color maps, diagrams, and timelines
  • Edited by acclaimed military historian John Keegan
  • Comprehensive coverage of the prewar world and the world at war
  • Examination of military plans and key battles
  • Internet links for further research
  • Glossary and Index

For anyone with an interest in the history, society, politics, warfare, and culture of the world, the Collins Atlas of World War II is a perfect companion.
